Teachers agreed that this is one of the most difficult of dances. One of the greatest contributions of the Mambo is that it led to the development of the Cha-Cha. The Mambo is enjoying a renewed popularity due to a number of films featuring the dance as well as a man named Eddie Torres. Eddie is a New York dance pro and Mambo fanatic who has launched a crusade to make sure the dance reigns in the ballroom once again.

Sometimes, it was simply called Danzon Mambo.

In fact, it took a couple of decades for the new style to be able to transform itself into Mambo. The popularity of Jazz music and the big band phenomenon of the s and s played a major role in the development of Mambo.
Damaso Perez Prado, a talented pianist from Cuba, was the one who was able to consolidate the definitive arrangements that pushed Mambo music into a worldwide phenomenon.
