Both Latin dances cumbia and tango come from South America.
The cumbia comes from Colombia, where bands called vallenato ensembles play the music that goes with it. Instruments include a diatonic button accordion, drums, shakers, and scrapers.
The music combines Spanish, Native American, and African influences.
The tango is a graceful, romantic ballroom dance that originated in Argentina and spread to international popularity in the early twentieth century.
Like the cumbia, it is popular among Hispanic Americans from many countries.
