Yumba Rosin

Recommended Posts

Sounds like it should be a really rockin' rosin. ;) From their website:

"Yumba is a tango created by Osvaldo Pugliese in 1946
during the Golden Age of Argentine Tango”. 
Such term comes from the rhythmical onomatopoeia (zhoóm-ba)
whose “Zhoóm” or “Yum” syllable makes reference to the strong beats 
while “Ba” to the weak ones. This resource adopted by orchestras 
and composers has become a marcato, typical feature
 within its style. Our intention was to identify the brand with the sound, 
being the latter new during that period, which was characterized 
by the splendor of Tango in Argentina thanks to its popularity 
gained in the new worker class (industrial and urban) and dancing style.
Morever, Yumba was coined to honour the Tango master Pugliese, 
who was popularly considered to be the patron saint of musicians."
