The birthplace of rumba
Pasión de Buena Vista has been bringing Cuban mentality to European stages for many years. Music styles known all over the world today, such as rumba, mambo, cha-cha-cha and salsa, have their origins in just four basic elements. Apart from timbrels and drums, there are traditionally no other instruments in the music. With the addition of melodic instruments, the now commercialized form of the rumba and other fashionable dances developed from this. The son, an alternating song between singer and choir accompanied by the Spanish and Latin American tres guitar, is the crowd favorite. It was invented by sugar workers in Santiago de Cuba during the 1920s. Claves and maracas make up the rhythm. With the rapid spread of the son, more instruments were added, such as wooden bass, bongos and trumpets.
