Just like an episode about a month ago, this episode of Mambo is dedicated entirely to the Cuban genre ‘bolero’. This episode will feature various boleristas (performers of the ‘bolero’) such as Tito Allen, Elena Burke, and Adalberto Santiago.

Marcelino Guerra was a great composer of boleros. He came from eastern Cuba and arrived in the Cuban capital of Havana in the early 1930s. During this period, the ‘bolero’ took on the form we know today.

Guerra played the guitar but also sang, making him the personification of the ‘bolero’. You’ll hear him perform several songs with other singers at the start of this episode.

The ‘bolero’ also became very popular in New York City, especially in the 1950s. A beloved bolerista was the renowned Tito Rodriguez (pictured above). This hour, you’ll hear him with the song ‘Nuestro Balance’.
