The Corrido

The Corrido

During our last production workshop, students explored various elements of sound, and began to develop and produce a Corrido which will be submitted to The Corrido of LA: an event celebrating the centennial of The Mexican Revolution hosted by USC and LACMA. Students in grades 7-12 throughout Los Angeles are invited to commemorate the Mexican Revolution by composing a corrido - a ballad song - about the city they call home. Since the nineteenth century the corrido functioned as the people's oral "newspaper," documenting events of everyday social and political life.
