The roots of most of today’s Latin music and dance are Afro-Cuban. In the 1930s, Spanish-Cuban Xavier Cugat popularized Latin music at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. Machito and his arranger Mario Bauza are the fathers of Latin Jazz in the 1940s. Celia Cruz with Sonora Matancera helped popularize Cuban music across Latin America before becoming a global star in New York. The Mambo Craze that swept our country in 1948 started at the Palladium Ballroom. What we now call Salsa is actually Cuban music popularized by Latin musicians in New York’s Puerto Rican community.
