 AFRO-CUBAN MUSIC : MusicWeb Encyclopaedia of Popular Music
Cuban music has had an important influence on international popular music for a hundred years, and still does so despite a cultural embargo between the USA/Cuba since the Castro revolution '59; much of its essence comes from the ceremonies of Afro-Cuban religious cults, which struck a compromise between African and Catholic religious beliefs.
The Afro-Cuban songs adapted by Cuban dance orquestas generally fall into categories of invocations (others are "Ochun', "Ecue'), cradle songs ("Oggere', "Lacho'), popular sayings ("Facundo') and romantic songs ("Negra Trista', "La Cumparsa').

Although virtually all jazz groups prior to the rise of bebop in the early to mid-'40s played for dancers, the term "dance bands" is used to describe orchestras of the 1920s and '30s whose primary function was to play background music for dancers rather than to serve as vehicles for jazz improvisations.
