LambadaÂ HistoryÂ is very interesting,Â becauseÂ itÂ is composedÂ ofÂ manyÂ stories and it is quite difficult toÂ hearÂ one and the sameÂ storyÂ of Lambada.Â But doubtlessÂ remainsÂ the fact that the LambadaÂ is oneÂ of theÂ most famous and popular LatinÂ dances, whichÂ are known andÂ are dancingÂ around the world.
The wordÂ “lambada” refers toÂ the rhythmÂ (a mixture ofÂ karimboÂ andÂ merengue)Â and danceÂ thatÂ combinesÂ elements ofÂ ForryÂ (forrÃ³),Â samba,Â merengue andÂ maxixe (Brazilian danceÂ of the nineteenth century), which hadÂ hugeÂ successÂ inEurope. Lambada became the most popular dance in 1989 and early 1990’s.Â This fiery dance which was born in Latin America, ruled the entire planet, and inEuropeit sold over two million records with Lambada music.Â People were amazed with this music that reminded the rustle of palm trees, the lapping of the warm ocean, singing of birds. That’s why in the early 90’s almost every day on American and European television was shown video of Lambada dancing by professional South American dancers.Â That was true musical performance video, which was kind of a dance school, and opened a whole world of Latin American culture. Europeans and Americans took lambada with enthusiasm, they admired the fiery and the brightness of Hispanics, and soon Lambada was dancing in the whole Europe andAmerica.
