Clips from Latin Music USA: Episode 1, “Bridges” and From Mambo to Hip Hop: A South Bronx Tale will be shown. The clips will explore how mambo--the Cuban hybrid of traditional danson fused with syncopated Afro-Caribbean rhythms--migrated to New York City from Havana in the 1940s and broke social and musical rules.
