Carmen Baron fell in love with folklorico while growing up in Altar, Sonora. That’s where as a young girl, her mother placed her on her lap while she worked at a sewing machine. But Carmen didn’t start learning about her Mexican heritage until she moved to Tucson in 1973. Since then, she has been dedicated to passing on her knowledge and the tradition of folklorico to the next generation.
