  Lambada - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lambada is a dance which became internationally popular in the 1980s.
The association of Lambada and Dirty Dancing/Forbidden Dance became quite extensive, mostly due to the 1990 movie Lambada, although the people who dance this rhythm in Brazil and everywhere else prefer to define it as a sensual and romantic dance rather than erotic.
As the Lambada traveled through and down the north-east coast of Brazil reaching Bahia, it began receiving some influences from the forró, until it finally became a 4-beated dancing style, which was definitively different from the original Carimbó.

 Plant Research International Strawberry varieties: Lambada (English)
Lambada is a strawberry with a fabulous flavour.
Lambada, as a result of its fine taste, beautiful colour and excellent fruit size and shape, is not just good to eat but also is ideal for use in the Patisserie or the gastronomic kitchen.
Lambada was selected in 1982 at the then IVT (Presently Plant Research International), from a cross between: IVT-76013 (Sivetta x Holiday), a line with excellent yield and fruit quality - and IVT-74112 (Karina x Primella), a line with exceptional flavour.

 Dance History
The word lambada refers both to the rhythm - a fusion of Carimbó; and merengue - and to the dance, which incorporates elements of forró;, samba, merengue and Maxixe (the 19th century Brazilian dance which was a tremendous success in Europe).
As the Lambada traveled through the coast until reaching Bahia (the elder Brazilian state) it started to receive some influences from the Forró; dance (another strong beated and old Brazilian style of dance), and finally it became a 4-beated dancing style, in which we can definitely say it was different from the original Carimbó;.
What really happened to Lambada was that in its peak it was mistaken for something of pornography, by people who knew nothing about the dance itself and tried to make "news out" over something which, at best, was a sensual way of dancing.

 Lambada & The Forbidden Dance Reviews - Jabootu's Bad Movie Dimension
The Lambada, for you youngsters out there, was a South America dance that basically consisted of two partners grinding their crotches together in mimed intercourse.
Lambada, lest you confuse those two, is the one with more dirty dancing and a hunkier lead.
I mean, the whole status of the Lambada as more or less simulated intercourse—did you know the dance was so dirty it was outlawed in Brazil?—is such that maybe folks who’d want to see a Lambada movie would expect some actual sexual content and/or nudity.

 ‘Lambada’ (PG-13) and ‘The Forbidden Dance’ (PG-13)
There's Cannon's "Lambada," which promises to "Go all the way," or 21st Century's "The Forbidden Dance," which teases, "If it were any hotter, it wouldn't be dancing." The dance, a sort of pelvic slam that originated in Brazil, may sizzle, but neither movie is going to set the night on fire.
"Lambada," the better of the two, is far lighter on its feet with a flashier look and a professional cast.
At least, her interpretation of the lambada is a kind of rhythmic spraddle.

The remarkable thing is that Lambada is very easy and safe to fly with precise, comfortable handling which excites all the guys who've had a chance to try it.
The Lambada sports a split-A, something of a rarity for this level of glider, and the designers obviously made easy big ears a major function of the Lambada--even advising its use as the preferred method of landing in turbulence in the owner's manual.
On the Lambada I was startled at how easily the ears dropped--I'm guessing it took something on the order of one fith to one tenth the effort that it would on a conventional riser-arrangement wing.

 The First International Lambada Congress, Barcelona 2004
Lambazouk by Gege incorporated lots of acrobatics and pick ups, which led to the change of the basic Lambada step: after every long (3) step the female dancer makes sure her knees are flexible, her belly and bottom are very tight and she is ready to face a jump or pick up.
Right before the third party, the last one for the Congress, I had to throw my things into the taxi and rush to the airport together with 3 other lambada lovers from London, who didn't even have time to change out of their fancy dancing clothes.
While all the rest of the Congress people gathered at the Ball Centre lobby for the party, wearing white (the Brazilian New Year tradition), I was on my way to a distant airport terminal.
