Extended Keywords: "What Jorrín composed, by his own admission, were nothing but creatively modified danzones. The well-known name came into being with the help of the dancers [of the Silver Star Club in Havana, when, in inventing the dance that was coupled to the rhythm, it was discovered that their feet were making a peculiar sound as they grazed the floor on three successive beats: cha-cha-chá, and from this sound was born, by onomatopeia, the name that caused people all around the world to want to move their feet..." Sanchez-Coll 2006 This may well be true but this sound was their not only in the feet of dancers at the Silver Star Club but in the drums and Hand-claps everywhere. However I will give credit because they called it Cha-cha-cha and can I remind you of a very similar sound called Wim-o-weh a Zulu chant not a million miles from cha-cha-cha- What I have done is to turn it into new Jazz that is very exciting.
