Re: Classical Rumba Music Posted by nloftofan1 6/11/2014 8:46:00 AM
This is a bit of a cheat. 100 or more years ago nobody would have danced a Rumba. So I'm suggesting music from a little less than 100 years ago: Ravel's Bolero. I'm not sure if it's suitable for the dance we now call Bolero, but I think you could dance an International Rumba to Ravel's Bolero. You need to look for a version that plays the music slowly. Many orchestras play it faster than Ravel intended, and doing a Rumba to those versions would be a race.
