“Groovísimo” is written in the style of the “Cha-cha-cha” (often shortened to “Cha-cha”), which is a traditional Cuban dance form made popular in the 50’s. The form emerged from Cuban Mambo and Danzon dance forms. The name is thought to imitate the sound made by dancers’ feet upon the dance floor. Given the “bluesy” riffs that appear throughout- a good starting point for young soloists in this particular piece could be the C Minor Blues (concert) scale, however, students should definitely keep the style of the piece in mind and utilize a similar rhythmic feel (also remembering that less is oftentimes more).
