Night of Mambo and Tangolele Planned for Feb. 12 at Carrillo Center

The Carrillo Recreation Center will host “Mambo & Tangolele, a Sexy Night of Cabaret,” an evening of Latin American music, dance and culture presented by Sex In D City from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. Feb. 12, 2016.

“Mambo & Tangolele” will feature historic videos of dance and musical performances. The show also will feature The Dollface Dames, burlesque dancers from Los Angeles.

After the hour-long performance, everyone attending will be invited to dance.

Mambo is a fast ballroom dance of Caribbean origin that is rhythmically similar to the rumba and cha-cha but has more complex pattern of steps.

Mambo dance and music became quite popular in the 1950s and still has many devotees.

Tangolele refers to another popular dance and music style that started in the 1950s. It was popularized by Mexican film actress Yolanda “Tongolele” Montes, who became a professional exotic dancer when she was 15 years and achieved international fame as Tongolele.

 “Mambo & Tangolele” will feature music ranging from Tito Puente to Celia Cruz to Gloria Estefan.

Admission to “Mambo & Tangolele” is $35 for presale and $40 at the door. See . The price of admission includes one drink.

“It will be a unique night that you cannot miss,” said event organizer Monica Elias Calles, who said she would like to put on similar events in the future.

The Carrillo Recreation Center is located at 100 E. Carrillo Street in downtown Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
