-Program Note from publisher

The mambo is said to have its origins in Cuba in the 1930s, and Aresnio Rodriguez is credited with the creation of mambo music. The music was later developed in Havana and Perez Prado brought the music to Mexico. In the 1940s, Prado was said to come up with the dance and was the first person to market this traditional music as “Mambo.” Generations later, the Mambo is often called “Salsa.” Regardless of what you call it, Mambo Greats features four classic mambo hits from Tito Puente, Perez Prado and Pablo Beltrán Ruiz: Mambo #5, Ran Kan Kan, Sway and Mambo Jambo, and is sure to make you want to get up and join the fun!
