  • Boogaloo

    Is there more than one style called boogaloo? I know all about latin-soul by Joe Cuba Joe Bataan etc style boogaloo, and anyway, that's bugalu, but I've also heard funk stuff that doesn't sound latin at all called boogaloo. Fast stuff like 'Boogaloo Tramp' by AC Reed. Is it boogaloo or not boogaloo or is it a different type of boogaloo to the boogaloo I've been doing the boogaloo too?

        The soul boogaloo was a dance/music style/buzzword that was inspired by the latin boogaloo. This web site explains all about the origins:

          Now I love me Latin boogaloo. But can someone tell me if there is a difference between Boogaloo and Shingaling?

            Shing-a-ling was another name for the boogaloo style dance/music, probably relating slightly more to the Afro-American sounds of the 60s than the Latin influences.

            Here are another two very interesting articles I've uncovered on this:

              A good LP to get is James Brown plays the New Breed on Smash
              Dunno why, it's just quite interesting!

              I think bugaloo became popular because Latin records helpfully put the style of each song after the title (bolero, merengue, bugaloo, etc) and Bugaloo's were the Jams!

              But the latin bugaloo did have a strong influence on the birth of funk music so the name carried on even if the music sounded different.


              edit: just read that first article in previous post.... dense but good. And confirms my theory that NYC is the most interesting place in the world for diggin. You may not get the grails but it's like one big library of congress for music, mainly in VG-.

                on the topic of different dances:

                The first line of James Brown's There Was A Time, does he flub his lines? He starts this slightly out of place "there was a dance" and then goes "huh" and starts the verse again but says "there was a time" ... fuckin amateur.

                    What about Bogaloo as in "Alligator Bogaloo" by Lou Donaldson?

                      Boogaloo / shing-aling / pony/horse/ watusi/ philly dog, etc, were all black dance crazes. There are billions of em. The presence of these terms in the titles of records is just short hand for "a record you can do the whateveritis to".

                      Later, you got things like the funky chicken, the robot (an early form of bodypopping) and so on through to the hustle, breakdancing and jack your body...

                      Oh yeah, and I can do all of them.
