"Tumbao" roughly translates into "groove or "swing" and it's what you call the bass line in Salsa music. But tumbao is also the feel of music, the way all the elements come together to make something unique. In this episode, we're broadening the definition of tumbao. NPR's Latino USA kicks off the New Year by celebrating with stories of music of all genres that have their own sort of swing: from folk to mambo and even some opera.
