In the 1930’s, a Cuban song, “El Manicero” (The Peanut Vendor), became a world-wide hit, reaching even into the heart of Africa. The ensuing popularity of Latin music and dance styles like rumba, mambo and cha cha cha, which evolved in salsa, had a powerful effect of African music through the 1970’s.
Whether recorded 40 years ago or in the 21 st century, African Rumba highlights the long-standing love affair between Africans and Cuban music.
