History of Latin Music: Rhumba! Samba! Tango! Mambo! with John Clark

September 13 @ 11:00 am

Join John Clark for a Presentation on the history of Latin American music. American popular music comes mostly from South American and Cuban dance music. Starting with The Peanut Vendor in 1928 and The Carioca, an Oscar winning dance hit for Fred Astaire in 1934. The 1940’s to the 60’s saw hits by Xavier Cugat (Brazil), Charlie Spivak (Besame Mucho), mambo king Prez Prado with Cherry Pink & Apple Blossom White and Mexican rock & roller Ritchie Valens with La Bamba, folky Guantanamera, Herb Alpert’s pop mariachi (The Lonely Bull) and samba Grammy winner Girl from Ipanema. Carmen Miranda and Desi Arnaz also made a big splash in the movies and on record. Registration required. Sponsored by the John and Mary Murphy Foundation.
