The Rumba is the slowest of the five competition Latin and American dances. Before the mambo, salsa and pachanga became popular, Rumba was also known as the style of music commonly heard in Cuba.
The distinctive hip movement, called Cuban Motion, is a very important element of the Rumba. These hip movements and characteristic sways of the Rumba are generated by the bending and straightening of the knees. The intensity of the Rumba is increased by sharp eye contact that is maintained between the man and the woman. The stillness of the upper body, while adding dramatic intensity, also emphasizes the strong, sensuous leg and foot movements.
The basic rhythm of the Rumba is quick-quick-slow with distinctive side-to-side hip movements. Hip movements are exaggerated, but are not generated by the hips - they are simply a result of good foot, ankle, knee and leg action.
When these weight transfers are well-controlled, the hips take care of themselves. Distinctive Rumba steps include the following:. One full step is completed in two measures of music. The music tempo is usually about to beats per minute. Rumba rhythms, while once influenced by African-style music, have found their way into the country, blues, rock, and other popular music genres.Jan 26, · View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the Vinyl release of Tani - Disco Rumba & Flamenco Boogie on Discogs.
