苦难孕育文化,音乐与舞蹈则孕育欢乐。

包子老师说:“跳Salsa怎么能不知道自己跳的音乐有什么故事呢?”Ray老师说:”文化知识就像内裤一样,平时不用显摆给人看,但一定要有穿。“

于是,就萌生了想做这个音乐专辑的想法,每周四定期在Fiesta官网首更,公众号延期一周推送。在这里,我们会聊一聊音乐背后的故事,或许是有关音乐的历史故事,或许是介绍一张经典的音乐专辑。同时,我们还会根据推送内容附赠音乐下载链接。希望舞蹈之于大家不仅仅是一个娱乐消遣,也可以成为一种生活态度,成为一种你自身的修养积淀。

现在,就开始我们的音乐甜旅吧!


今天我们来聊一聊Salsa音乐当中的一种类型Timba。


Timba is a Cuban genre of music based on popular Cuban music along with salsa, American funk/R&B, and the strong influence of Afro-Cuban folkloric music.

Timba是一种基于古巴流行音乐的流派,此外还融合了Salsa,美国Funk/R&B, 并深受古巴黑人通俗音乐的影响。

The word timba is part of a large family of mb and ng words that made their way into Spanish from African languages. Among the hundreds of other examples are tumba, rumba, marimba, kalimba, mambo, conga, and bongo.

Timba这个词源于词根“mb” 和 ”ng” ,它们将非洲语演变成西班牙语。这样的例子还有很多,比如tumba,rumba, marimba, kalimba, mambo, conga, and bongo.


Before it became the newest Cuban music and dance craze, timba was a word with several different uses yet no particular definition, mostly heard within the Afro-Cuban genre of rumba. A timbero was a complimentary term for a musician, and timba often referred to the collection of drums in a folklore ensemble. Since the 1990s, timba has referred to Cuba's intense and slightly more aggressive music and dance form.


在成为古巴最新的音乐和舞蹈风靡以前,timba只是一个有不同用途却没有准确定义的词,经常在Afro-Cuban流派中的Rumba音乐中被听到。Timbero对音乐家来说是赞美之词,timba通常指通俗乐团中鼓的统称。上世纪九十年代以来,timba渐渐成为古巴音乐和舞蹈的一种模式。


At least as far back as 1943, the word timba was used in lyrics and song titles such as Casino de la Playa's Timba timbero and Perez Prado's Timba timba. It's also the name of a neighborhood in Havana. It came into use as a music genre name, first as timba brava, around 1988. Many, most famously NG La Banda's leader Jose Luis "El Tosco" Cortes, claim credit for being the first to use it to describe the new musical phenomenon.


至少在1943年时,timba这个词用于歌词和歌名,例如Casino de la Playa's Timba timbero 和 Perez Prado's Timba timba。它也是havana中一个社区的名字。Timba首先作为一种音乐流派的名字,是在1988年左右被称为timba brava。许多人宣称自己首先使用timba这个称谓,其中最著名的是NG La Banda的领导Jose Luis "El Tosco" Cortes。

说了这么多,那么到底什么样的音乐类型可以被称之为Timba呢?我们就先听为快吧!
