The Mambo dance originated in Cuba, among its Haitian immigrants. The fusion of Swing and Cuban music produced this fascinating rhythm and in turn created a new sensational dance. The Mambo dance is attributed to Perez Prado who introduced it at La Tropicana night-club in Havana in 1943. It first appeared in the United States in New York's Park Plaza Ballroom - a favorite hangout of enthusiastic dancers from Harlem. The Mambo gained its excitement in 1947 at the Palladium and other renowned places such as The China Doll, Havana Madrid and Birdland.
