Play genre

Mambo is a lively and upbeat music genre that originated in Cuba in the 1930s. It is characterized by its fast-paced rhythms and syncopated beats, often featuring brass and percussion instruments. Mambo gained popularity in the United States in the 1940s and 1950s, with its infectious dance rhythms inspiring a craze for Latin music and dance. The genre is closely associated with the Cuban dance style of the same name, which involves intricate footwork and hip movements. Mambo music is often performed by large ensembles, with vocalists delivering energetic and passionate performances.
