ASK A QUESTION what does Bamba ( la Bamba) actually mean, I know it is a dance, but what is literal translatin of Bamba
La Bamba is a kind of dance, I know. But is there a literal translation you can give me of the word Bamba? Gracias
The derivation of the word "bamba," according to the RAE, stems from an onomatopoeia. I would imagine that this onomatopoeia is probably related or derived from the typical rhythmic sound of the music to which the dance is performed.
Here is the link to the RAE entry if you are interested: Bamba
