<B>Dance hall days</B><P>In Scotland on Sunday Jo Bedingfield looks at Mexican popular dance in LA and Mexico City. <P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Eight o’clock on Tuesday night and the floor is packed with couples gracefully pirouetting in tight, controlled circles. Many have come to the Los Angeles dance hall from work, others from home, even if it means a long bus ride from one of the far-flung working-class barrios, or neighbourhoods, edging the valley of Mexico, home to the country’s capital, Mexico City. <P>The big band noise is upon you before you know it. Carlos Campos is on stage tonight, with six saxophonists giving it their all. The first thing you notice is a heavily charged tropical bass beat, deep and unrelenting. The rhythm explodes over you like a thousand bolts of light, leaving you tingling and happy. Latin music is the opposite of the blues - it’s pure optimism, conjuring up blue sky, bright colours, fiesta, excitement.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> <P><BR><A HREF="http://www.scotlandonsunday.com/spectrum.cfm?id=SS01035409&keyword=dance" TARGET=_blank><B>more...</B></A><BR>
