Corridos are probably the most common form of capoeira songs. The name corrido which literally means ‘run’ probably has to do with the back to back call and response format of the songs. They are prominent in both Regional and Angola. These are songs either without a solo verse or with maybe one verse followed by the corro response. The song really involves the roda as a response is often required after every line.


There are two main parts to a Corrido

  • Verses (optional): There may or may not even be a solo verse in a corrido. If there is one, it is sung by the soloist before the coro
  • Call: This is the part of sung by the soloist that is then responded to by the people in the roda.
  • Coro: This is the response to the call by the soloist. It is sung by the people in the roda.
