«The word mambo was likely being used in the New World as soon as the Bakongo people arrived in the sixteenth century… basically, mambo means a complex of things involving communication — all of which, in traditional Bantu culture, involved singing.
Arsenio Rodriguez, who claimed to have invented the modern musical style called mambo, and whose grandfather was Congo, told Cuban musicologist Odilio Urfe: „The word mambo is African, of the Congo dialect. One singer says to the other: abre cuto güiri mambo, that is: 'open your ear and listen to what I'm going to tell you.'“ Or, in the argot of the 1980s: word up.» — Ned Sublette, Cuba and its Music.
See you this Friday, KEEP ON DANCING!!!
