Definition of Coro

In colloquial urban language it is often used to refer to a group of friends who get together to have a good time.

It also refers to a group of people who sing simultaneously the same piece of music or part of it.


  1. Ensemble, choral society or group


Choir, comes from the Latin “chorus” although it has its more remote origin in the Greek language, and is called choir, in singing to that vocal grouping composed of a group of people who come together to perform a piece of vocal music in a coordinated manner.

It is therefore a collective means of interpretation of certain works that are sung and require the use of the voice.

It is also referred to a group of actors who acted unanimously in classical tragedies, and their function was to contemplate the spectacle while the main action was being performed, commenting on that action in the intervals with songs alluding to what was being represented.

However, in countries such as the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico, the connotation changes a little, meaning a group of people who join together to have a good time and drink.

The expression “hazme coro” is used in those countries to refer to a person who requires attention or who wants others to do the same as him/her, it is like: “do the same as me, pay attention to me”.


The choir is made up of different types of voices, which are grouped in strings and these voices in turn according to the register or tessitura, that is to say in the interval of notes that voice is capable of interpreting.

From the beginnings of reggaeton, at the time of The Noise, reference was already made to “al corillo”. Precisely a group of people who would accompany the singer in the lyrics.
