The estampida is the Occitan equivalent of the French estampie. According to Grocheo in his book De Musica the estampie is a melody without words with a complicated melodic progression. This does not seem to have been a universally accepted definition however, as the song Kalenda maia by Raimbaut de Vaquerais describes itself as an estampida.
