First Corrido Dedicated to President Obama

Regional Mexican singer/songwriter Juan Carlos Sanchez (stage name El Sinaloa 21) has scored a hit with “El Corrido de Barack Obama,” the first corrido (a popular narrative song form in Mexico) dedicated to a President of the United States. It’s also on its way to becoming the first corrido with an alternate English language version. And even if you don’t speak Spanish, you’ll enjoy the original version below … not least for the bitchin’ slideshow images.
