English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Spanish corrido.

Noun[edit]

corrido (plural corridos)

  1. (music) A Mexican or Mexican-American ballad or folk song.
    Hyponym: narcocorrido
    • 2015, John Holmes McDowell, ¡Corrido!: The Living Ballad of Mexico's Western Coast, UNM Press (→ISBN), page 2:
      The Mexican corrido remains essentially true to these Iberian roots in regard to its poetic form and its handling of narrative subjects. It is probable that the term corrido is a shortening of the term romance corrido, meaning a through-sung ballad, as attested in Spanish usage during the sixteenth century (Simmons 1963).
