What is Pachanga? If you want to know what we'll be doing tonight, check out this guide to pachanga

We all know of the general dancing styles in the Latin world: Salsa, Cha-Cha, Merengue, Bachata, Rumba... and so on. However, I've been frequently asked on 'pachanga'. Pachanga is first a style of music which originated in Cuba in the late 1950's. If you have ever listened to a cha-cha song which may have sounded with a stronger down-beat - it might have been pachanga music. During that era, it gained popularity in replacing cha-cha as the dance in Cuba. However, nowadays it is mainly popular in Columbia. I found a great video of Eddie Torres explaining and dancing some real pachanga (with a good exemplary pachanga-styled song) at a dance congress in Italy. http://youtube.com/watch?v=Yvk1eJkgico And here is what Pachanga looks like in the Cali, Columbia region: http://youtube.com/watch?v=PyDJqCO8FuI
