    Not a leader, but it's pretty slow. It's listed at 83 BPM, which is well below even typical international rumba tempo (which is officially 104-108 BPM: obviously there's leeway for a social dance).

    If it is slower than International Rumba then it is better suited for Bolero.

  5. Would Stay work as a bolero? I've been thinking of it that way in my head. Haven't tried it yet though.

    Here is a new samba song.
    Shaggy, Mohombi, Faydee, & Costi
    Habibi (I Love You).

    Can't post the youtube link but samba beat starts at around 0:50 and goes throughout. We all know how hard good modern samba songs are to come by so I thought I'd share. Enjoy!

    To me it sounds to slow for even Bolero. just listening to it I have a hard time with the beat. If anyone gets to try it on the floor we'll have to post back with the results!

    I'm sure that was purposely written/worded as such ;)
