When was the ‘Golden Age’? Was it the 1930s, the 1910s, the 1920s, the early 20th century, or is it a recent phenomenon?” said Rumba dance. “The answer to this question depends on the particular cultural context. Generally, the term ‘Golden Age’ refers to a time in which most of the European countries, especially those in Latin America, the Caribbean, and the West Indies, had large-scale literacy, so that the vast majority of people were literate. During this time, traditional Rumba rhythms were developing, often influenced by European and American styles.
“In the United States, Rumba was in its Golden Era during the 1920s through the 1970s, but this was an era of relative ‘secular’ prosperity; its prosperity did not extend to the majority of the country. During the 1970s in the United States, the use of the word ‘vibrological’ to describe dances began to become popular, with dancers and audiences recognizing the benefits of Rumba because of its rich vibes and rhythm. Rumba dancers of the era took this new knowledge to the dance floor, using the vibronical technique of the Rumba community to create a rich and energetic dance from a multitude of rhythms and variations, creating a new language, and providing a whole new cultural background for Rumba dancing in the U.S.”
About the Journal of Rumba Dance Studies
The Journal of Rumba Dance Studies is the premiere academic journal specializing in the study of dance that is rooted in Rumba, the traditional language of this Afro-Caribbean culture.
The Journal strives to bring the best of the African and Caribbean cultures to the world through scholarly research and scholarship, which emphasizes the importance of Rumba and its traditional dance communities, the role of African Americans in the dance community, as well as the history and influence of dance on African Americans and women.
“We are very excited to be publishing this new journal because it represents the essence of the Rumba community, and our mission is to document the legacy of the rhythms and the culture of this community as we continue our march toward a new era of cultural appropriation,” said Michael “Pops” Pizzo, Journal-Editor, Rumba Dance Studies, and Associate Professor of Media/Public Service at American University.
“The Journal has published numerous articles focusing on cultural appropriation and how that process is harmful in general
