Corrido music is a popular narrative song from Mexico most commonly in poetry form or as a ballad. Various themes are
featured in Mexican corridos, and corrido lyrics are often old legends and ballads about a famed criminal or hero in the rural
frontier areas of Mexico. The songs are often about oppression, history, daily life for peasants, and other socially relevant
topics. It is still a popular form today in Mexico and was widely popular during the Mexican Revolutions of the 20th century.
