Salsa Music Dictionary

3 of the most important terms-- Danzon, Systemo Cubano and TRIPLE Mambo would be more in keeping with origins .

These are the basis for which all the current social dances (Mambo, Salsa and Cha ) have their roots .

Also Pachanga was huge in L.A. in the late fifties and early sixties -- had many people come in for lessons .

Being a musician I've been stumped on the official meaning of the word so it'll be good to find info on it. I've gone with it meaning a particular style of playing congas but the word is........


I've heard it used in sentences to describe other musicians (mostly congueros) like:

"chacho bro, ese tipo tiene un mazacote bien cabron."

(my spanish might be a lil off, lol)
Note that many songs are not always 100% of one type. Just like in many art forms people blend and mix and come up with new styles. So one song can have the main structures of one style but with stuff added to that..
