Boogaloo or bugalú (also also known as: Shing-A-Ling, Latin boogaloo & Latin R&B) is
a genre of Latin music and dance which was popular in the United States in the 1960s.
It originated in New York City mainly among teenage Puerto Ricans. The style was a
fusion of popular African American rhythm and blues (R&B) and soul music with mambo
and son montuno, with songs in both English and Spanish (spanglish).
