By combining Latin music (Mambo, Pachanga, Cha Cha), The contort, rhythm’n’blues and Rock’n’Roll another dance called Boogaloo was conceived. This new music had a blend of English and Spanish verses and was made to interest both the Black and Latin races in North America who had a hard existence in the 1960’s. This unique Boogaloo musicality was genuinely sluggish paced with just twelve dance steps. One of the most popular Boogaloo melodies of the time was “I like it like that” by Pete Rodriguez, who was referred to at the time as the ” King of Boogaloo “.
‘Current’ Boogaloo was created by speeded up a significant number of the first Boogaloo tracks from 33rpm to 45rpm (or quicker) and adding more percussion, instrumentals and a harder beat. (To this end a considerable lot of the more seasoned Boogaloo tracks have contorted shrill voices!).

This new quicker music ventured out to Cali, where Boogaloo dance as far as we might be concerned today flourished and developed into 30 new advances that were quicker and more mind boggling, as well as the first 12 stages.
