interfere with what I can do."
As the Milonga it is truly a Mestizo dance, beginning 2 or even 3000 years back as a solo Indian cat dance. With no accents, only a constant beat. They were affected by the instruments brought in by the Europeans, specially the Bandoneon by the Germans, And then the Staccato rhythm from Europe. Not really the last, but with the syncopation, it became Tango
Other versions of Tango music and dance have evolved, the Nordic Tango (Finnish) and the Oriental Tango (Chinese.) Then there those dances which are now part of the American and International Styles of Ballroom Dancing. Whether it's the Argentine Tango or another style, this sultry dance will set your soul on fire!

However, many variations of the Bachata have evolved over the years. The dance is a four-step beat and; action achieved with a walking Cuban hip motion, and a one-beat unique “pop,” hip motion, or pause. The young in Hawaii are really going for it.

Not from Africa, that's for sure.
Cha Cha Cha:
The Cha Cha music of today is still as exciting as ever in spite of the warmed over versions being played in Hawaii. It is not "you can dance Cha Cha to it, it is you have to dance Cha Cha to it." It is such a versatile dance that it can easily be done to many different styles of music from classic Tito Puente to Santana and Ricky Martin.
