Corrido De Bataan
My grandfather was among the survivors of the Bataan Death March during WWII in the Phillipines. He was at a prison camp for three years. He documented the story of his experience with a corrido he wrote at the camp called Corrido De Bataan. In the song he accounts a historical narrative of war, death, and survival. I recall him telling me about how they would make instruments at the camp from trash and sing these songs for comfort. His corrido is now documented at the Smithsonian Institute.
