Hello everyone, Since falling in love with salsa, I decided to choose the "origins of salsa" as the topic of a paper I am writing for an English writing course I am taking. From materials I have found in the library and online, would the experts here at salsa forums agree that these are the places where these dances originated from? Salsa: Cuba, Spain, Puerto Rico, USA Samba: Brazil, USA Cha Cha Cha: Cuba, England, USA Mambo: Cuba, USA Rumba: Cuba, Dominican Republic, Spain, Congo, USA, Madagascar Tango: Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, France, England, Spain I have listed more then one country for each of the dances because depending on the source, these were the countries that lay claim to having founded these dances. Are there any countries I missed out on or any interesting pieces of information about the origins that I should know about? In my essay, I am not going to say country A or country B is the rightfully origin of a certain type of dance, I am just going to document what books, websites and other historical documents say.
