CORRIDO     
Corridos are Mexican ballads, usually sung by a solo voice and accompanied on the guitar. Traditionally they were used to narrate important events to semi-literate communities, and favourite themes include the Mexican Revolution and Mexican migration to the USA. The corrido is similar in form to the Spanish romance from which it derives, but deals with the common people's struggle for justice, rather than the chivalrous deeds of the aristocracy.
