Charanga is a traditional ensemble that plays Cuban dance music. They made Cuban dance music popular in the 1940s and their music consisted of heavily son-influenced material, performed on European instruments such as violin and flute by a Charanga orchestra. The style of music that is most associated with a Charanga is termed ‘Danzón’, and is an amalgam of both European classical music and African rhythms.
