About The Event
Dupont Circle Main Streets and the Embassy of Guatemala present "David Talavera: a Gipsy Evening" -- live music to enjoy and dance in the spirit of Bamboleo (music to wobble-sway) and also performing Salsa and Cumbia.
Salsa is a popular form of social dance that originated in New York City with strong influences from Latin America, particularly Cuba and Puerto Rico. The movements of Salsa have its origins in Cuban Son, Cha cha cha, Mambo and other dance forms, and the dance, along with the Salsa music, originated in the mid-1970s in New York City.
Cumbia is a dance from Colombia. Since the 1940s, commercial or modern Cumbia expanded to the rest of Latin America, after which it became popular throughout the continent, including Guatemala, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, El Salvador, United States, Uruguay, and Venezuela.
