Mexican and Chicano popular music with Miguel Angel Cabanas: Greater Mexico Podcast 3, Part 2 (Mexican corridos)

In this month’s podcast we are joined by Miguel Angel Cabanas, associate professor of Spanish and Portuguese literature at Michigan State University. During the podcast Professor Cabanas talks to us about the history of the corrido, its roots in the Mexican Revolution and its modern evolution. He is also kind enough to sing some of the genre’s greatest hits. Dr Cabanas is author of The Cultural “Other” in Nineteenth-century travel narratives: How the United States and Latin America described each other and is working on a book on corridos in a transnational perspective.
