Translated version of http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estribillo

It case the link doesn't translate;

The chorus is a poetic appeal consisting of a handful of verses that are repeated. Traditionally we find the refrain at the beginning of the composition and repeated at the end of each verse. In the current song chorus also be understood as a verse that is repeated several times in a composition, in this case a song is richer at least sometimes repeat the refrain, with the case of compositions are so poor that only chorus on a basis repeating (Cumbia).

Among the poems that have traditionally led the chorus are zéjel, letrilla and carol, sometimes also the romance and other forms of folk poetry.
The chorus is a form of repetition, based rhythm and link that gives unity to the poem.

Its name derives from stirrup, explaining its basic function or theme that is the composition, to carry him into the main idea.
