What is Mambo? part one, the video search | August 1, 2012

Very cool, but a little too Broadway…

I love muppets, but…

I love New Orleans, too, but they’re actually doing a rumba, not a mambo…


Forward to about 1:50 to see the Tennessee Mambo…if you dare.

What the….?!

Perry Como in the Nevada desert, with mushroom clouds.  Right…

This is more like it…sexy.  Maybe a bit too Hollywood…

Love this!

You don’t see these shoulder movements in the US Mambo.  It makes the dance look very African.

I’ve got to find this documentary! 

There’s only one copy that I know of in a college library in Virginia.
