Introducing Club Corridos! ClubCorridos.com is a music streaming and social media hub that showcases The Orchard’s best-selling compilations on Mexican Corridos, Norteño and Banda.
You may be asking, what exactly is the Corrido? The Corrido is a popular epic ballad that traditionally involves simple guitar accompaniment. Lyrics tend to cover local or international events and explore themes such as fallen heroes and, more recently, drug trafficking, immigration and migrant labor.
Norteño and Banda are genres of Mexican music that while closely related to the Corrido, also have strong stylistic ties to the Polka and other popular music genres. A key difference between these two genres, however, is rooted in instrumentation; Norteño ensembles foreground the accordion and bajo sexto, whereas Banda is heavily brass-based. Like the Corrido, Banda and Norteño’s popularity is spreading rapidly throughout Americas and beyond.
