Untitled[edit]

I removed this from the main page. if this guy is notable, he needs his own page:

Boogaloo is also a guy who lives in Calgary, Alberta Canada. He was born in Ottawa, Ontario and moved to Calgary in 1995. He was a child actor and is currently an IT Consulatant.

Instrumentation?[edit]

Although I am not involved in any bands or know of many groups playing this genre of music lately, in differences with respect to salsa, it includes either clapping or a tambourine which sincopates the measures 1 and 3 wit either a single hit or two quavers (crotchett notes). Organs and marimbas are suitable for this rhythm, and lyrics are similar to the ones found in pregon (montuno call-response) style. 68.205.240.133 19:59, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

Conformity with Spanish article[edit]

We need to get the English and Spanish articles in sync. Click to see what I mean.Dogru41 (talk) 01:56, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Speeding up of boogaloo[edit]

I altered the final sentence of the history page, as it was very misleading. Before, it could have been interpreted as saying that by speeding up cha cha cha, you can "recreate" the boogaloo sound, which of course is not the case. Rather they speed up both cha cha cha and boogaloo, or other types of typically slower music, as they like faster music.

Need for merger[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
The result was merge the two articles. What the title of the merged article should be was not discussed here, but it seems reasonable that it should be Boogaloo.

Support MERGE: It seems clear to me that there should not be two pages dealing with the same topic. Since boogaloo is a fusion between pre-salsa Cuban and soul music, the two components should not be split. Looking at the content, the two pages are essentially the same. And none of the reference books makes such a distinction. Macdonald-ross (talk) 10:04, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Support merge: as a boogaloo listener and interested follower of the history, it seems unquestionable to me that these articles should be merged. eggsyntax (talk) 03:00, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Support merge: If there is a distinction, it is not well explained in either article. Right now the two seem to say the same thing. I've never thought of there being a non-Latin boogaloo (although I'm just a fan, not an expert). Rees11 (talk) 20:29, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Support: Both articles talk about the same thing. // Gbern3 (talk) 18:07, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

Notability[edit]

When contributions are removed from articles, the reason is usually that they do not match up to the requirements of WP:Guidelines.

Names of bands, numbers, musicians &c. should not be included unless they meet the WP criteria for Wikipedia:Notability (music). Please read it if in doubt. Note especially the following:

(Musician or group) has been the subject of multiple non-trivial published works whose source is independent from the musician or ensemble itself and reliable.
All articles on albums, singles or songs must meet the basic criteria at the notability guidelines, with significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject.

In general, any statement should be verifiable, and self-promotion and product placement are not allowed.

Violation of the guidelines is a sufficient ground for removal of the content in question. Macdonald-ross (talk) 10:20, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Popularity of Boogaloo[edit]

Certainly a section should be devoted to the non-latin offspings of the boogaloo sound in the mid 1960's, inspired by Lee Morgan's jazz hit The Sidewinder, on the Blue Note Records LP of the same name. Besides that label's many knockoffs trying to duplicate that hit, the rhythm and beat were used in Ray Charles' version of One Mint Julip, all those cocktail party scenes in Laugh-In, and even Sweet Charity's Rich Man Frug sequence in 1966. I'm sure there are a lot more notable instances of this comet-like period genre —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.80.254.19 (talk) 21:37, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

As to the antecedents of Boogaloo, I believe both Mongo Santamaría and Ray Barretto, if they were still alive, would be amused to see that the two songs mentioned in this article are part of this genre. "Watermelon Man" is a Latin jazz number while "El watusí" is a New York-based band's take on Cuban charanga. These tunes are in no way Boogaloo songs. Therefore, a correction is in order regarding their mention in this article. Alan1-11-195168.173.246.248 (talk) 04:07, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
