Acerca de Enrique Jorrin
Known as the creator of the Cha Cha Cha, violinist Enrique Jorrin was a prolific composer and influential Cuban band leader in the 1950s. He took the classic style of danzon and added a new rhythm, named after the sound of dancers shuffling their feet. This elegant music is played with the typical rhythm section of conga, timbales, bass and piano while violins and horns provide melodic ornamentation. Its relative simplicity and moderate tempo helped make Cha Cha Cha a truly phenomenal success during the '50s throughout the Americas. Tito Puente's "Oye Como Va," later covered by Carlos Santana, placed this rhythm into universal consciousness. Remaining in Cuba, Jorrin continued to play this genteel dance music throughout the '60s and '70s, with Ruben Gonzalez at his side playing piano.
