Mambo in the context of our curriculum refers to Salsa dancing On2. It should be noted that although there are some significant differences that can be discussed further later, for our purposes, the Mambo courses refer to Salsa, just danced in a slightly different - contratiempo - style. 


Mambo has a very long and interesting relationship to Salsa, both as a parent/predecessor and close cousin. As the Cuban Son migrated to the United States in the early 1900s, the influence of Jazz and the big band era along with other artistic forces led to a powerful sound that combined the roaring sounds of the horns with the bubbling rhythms of the Afro-Cuban percussion section. This Mambo sound of the 40s and 50s later evolved into what we know today as salsa. But the Mambo lives on!
