LambadaA HistoryA is really interesting, A becauseA itA is composedA ofA manyA narratives and it is rather hard toA hearA one and the sameA storyA of Lambada.A But doubtlessA remainsA the fact that the LambadaA is oneA of theA most celebrated and popular LatinA dances, whichA are known andA are dancingA around the universe.
The wordA ” lambada ” refers toA the rhythmA ( a mixture ofA karimboA andA merengue ) A and danceA thatA combinesA elements ofA ForryA ( forro ) , A obeche, A merengue andA maxixe ( Brazilian danceA of the 19th century ) , which hadA hugeA successA in Europe. Lambada became the most popular dance in 1989 and early 1990’s.A This fiery dance which was born in Latin America, ruled the full planet, and in Europe it sold over two million records with Lambada music.A Peoples were amazed with this music that reminded the rustling of thenar trees, the imbrication of the warm ocean, vocalizing of birds. That ‘s why in the early 90 ‘s about every twenty-four hours on American and European telecasting was shown picture of Lambada dancing by professional South American dancers.A That was true musical public presentation picture, which was sort of a dance school, and opened a whole universe of Latin American civilization. Europeans and Americans took lambada with enthusiasm, they admired the fiery and the brightness of Hispanics, and shortly Lambada was dancing in the whole Europe and America.
The history of lambada and its relationship with the universe music
The beginnings of Lambada dance came from “ karimbo ” – at the clip when Brazil was a Lusitanian settlement ( 1500-1822 gg. ) in the northern portion of the state there was a popular dance called karimbo, that was really animal dance of adult male and woman.A Over clip the dance has changed, and changed the music: because of the propinquity to the Caribbean part, the Caribbean music civilization had a strong influence on Brazilian music ( even today we can experience it if you listen to Caribbean wireless station in the northern provinces of Brazil ) .A This close relationship gave birth to some new rhythms – Sirimbo and Lari Lari ; so karimbo dance finally changed so much that gave birth to practically new one. After some clip theA localA wireless stationA BelemA ( capitalA of Para ) A began to callA this new sort ofA musicA ” percussionA beat ” andA ” the beat ofA Lambada ” A ( the word lambadaA meansA a strongA rhythmicA beatsA of music ) .A This lastA name “ Lambada ” A became really popular andA becameA associatedA with theA new imageA of the oldA dance manner.
LaterA people once more began to dance karimboA in braces, and it wasA really much likeA merengue, A but had aA largerA figure ofA spinning.A In the terminal, A a mixtureA of metalA and electronicA musicA of the CaribbeanA one time againA changed theA face ofA karimbo, A andA the musicA quicklyA spread throughout theA northeasternA part of BrazilA ( the mostA touristicA topographic points ) , onlyA thisA newA ” karimbo ” wasA alreadyA calledA Lambada.
Lambada long traveled along the seashore, and eventually reached Bahia ( the oldest of the Brazilian province ) , where it began to see the consequence of dance Forry ( another old Brazilian manner with the tonic beat ) .A Gradually, the timing of Lambada from a 4 / 4 changed to 2 / 2, so it can be confidently said that it was so lambada wholly lost its resemblance to the karimbo. Lambada was danced with dead set legs, stairss were made from side to side and ne’er from forepart to back.A In a manner were tight skirts, and it happened so that they began to be associated with the lambada, and lambada – with them.A Even presents in some topographic points ( for illustration in A«LambarA» – in the cabaret of the metropolis of Sao Paulo ) we can steel run into the authoritative twosomes: a lady in a narrow skirt and a adult male in long pants. ( Kempley 1990 )
Together with the A«Trio-eletricosA» ( great nomadic platform in which instrumentalists perform dancing and singing during the Carnival ) lambada began to distribute along Bahia and settled in the town of Porto Seguro.A During the first roar of Lambada in the south-eastern part of Brazil ( the most economically developed ) it refered to the beat that came from Bahia, and were assumed that all these rhythms live merely in the summer and so decease. WhileA allA acknowledgedA that theA lambadaA wasA a realA rushA of the summer, A many earlyA lambateriiA ( placesA where theA lambada was danced ) A wewreA closed closed in winter when tourers left.A However, lambadaA did notA dieA …
The narrative of LambadaA spreadA to EuropeA saysA thatA one dayA inA lateA summer, A severalA Gallic businessmenA cameA to BrazilA andA bought theA musicA rightsA to 300A songsA in the manner of Lambada.A Then theyA returned toA FranceA andA organizedA a groupA A«KaomaA» , A investingA batch of money in itsA promotion.A In that manner theA lambadaA styleA became knownA throughout the worldA and reached even theA Far East, A where itA has remainedA to this twenty-four hours. The universe febrility of Lambada was so strong that it even returned to Brazil, to the most economically developed south-eastern part, that has already forgotten it.A The fact that today in Brazil there are 1000s of schools of dance hall dance, great competitions and 10s of 1000s of terpsichoreans is a virtue of the Gallic A«KaomaA» and their international success.A
ThisA secondA waveA was calledA the SecondA BoomA of LambadaA and thisA event greatly influencedA the universe culture.A First of all lambadaA became an internationalA phenomenon, when 1000000s of youngA peopleA againA began toA danceA in braces, and evoked a moving ridge of interestA to the Latin American civilization.
Having spread around the universe, A the danceA has changed dramatically.A Due to theA factA thatA in Europe there was deficiency of good dancersA of Lambada ( forA illustration forA films andA shows ) , mostA professionalsA hadA to makeA alterations to it: theA lambadaA was addedA with whirlingA and steppe-likeA elementsA from jiveA and EastA CoastA swing, A every bit good asA someA acrobaticA motions. Many dancersA have begunA to mixA lambadaA with otherA musicalA manners, A tryingA to make somethingA newA andA unusual.
As to theA LambadaA music, it wasA playedA on allA wireless Stationss, A andA someA musiciansA ( eg, Sidney MagalA andA Fafa de Belem ) , seeking toA followA this new vawe, created new realA hits on its basis.A However, reasonably soonA people discovered thatA their interestA to theA lambadaA was based solelyA onA effortsA to gain moreA money, and theseA instrumentalists wereA quicklyA forgotten. After someA clip, A manyA composersA of Lambada seemed to be forgotten, these musicA and dance were losingA their power, A andA 1000000s ofA fansA around theA worldA wereA helplessA before it. Another musiciansA have begunA to mixA lambadaA with otherA musicalA manners, mixA Lambada withA CaribbeanA Soca, Merengue, SalsaA andA Zouk. Anyway, A nowA Zouk isA aA kid, aA nativeA sonA of ourA belovedA oldA Lambada.
ThusA we can sayA thatA lambadaA – isA a realA beat ofA LatinA America, whichA has aA richA and brightA national culture.A History ofA successA andA spread ofA LambadaA throughout the universe showsA that the cultureA of LatinA AmericaA is really popularA andA interesting toA people aroundA the world.A Latin AmericanA dancesA areA alwaysA really popular, A 1000000s ofA peopleA aroundA the worldA love to dance them.A Besides, A Latin AmericanA musicA attractsA Europeans andA Americans with its incendiaryA beat, A alone power.A LambadaA becameA oneA of the mostA brilliantA and incendiaryA dance, A which dancedA the whole universe, A andA despite the fact that itsA successA is alreadyA lost, the epoch ofA LambadaA opened theA brightness ofA theA cultureA in Latin America to the universe and brought new sound and rythms to the universe music industry.
