Lydian Gets Ready to Perform for the First Time with the Estudiantinas in Guanajuato, Mexico

Lydian performed with the estudiantina in Guanajuato for the first time on Christmas Eve. She didn’t have her costume yet, but the professor told her to wear something black and elegant. She was supposed to sing a solo, but the callejoneada didn’t go quite as planned and there was never time for her to do her solo. It was on this first callejoneada that Lydian learned that she’d have to learn everything as she goes along. The group hardly ever practices. Instead, they perform every night of the year, including Christmas Eve.
