Corridos sin Fronteras: A New World Ballad Tradition

Corridos, as a world ballad tradition, afford teachers and students a primary source based on an oral tradition that spans nearly two centuries. Corridos reflect the evolving perspectives and concerns of urban and rural working-class peoples from the United States and Mexico. Using the lyrics and music of the corridos along with the accompanying website, students will have the opportunity to analyze written texts, visual images and objects to develop their understanding of various themes, regions and perspectives of North American history.
