Latin » Latin America » Pachanga

The pachanga was a brief dance craze centered on the teenaged Latin population of New York City, though it probably originated in Cuba. Charangas of the time (led by everyone from Arsenio Rodriguez to Tito Puente to Charlie Palmieri to Joe Quijano) often worked in the quick-time rhythms of pachanga, though the dance was so frenetic that it died a quick death from the sheer lack of participators.
