Music x Movement: Maluca Mala

As I was checking out Maluca’s music video for her latest release, “Mala,” a thought came across my mind that this particular track may be a good song for a Zumba class. Granted, I’ve never personally taken a Zumba class. However, I would definitely be curious to see what dance routines can be created to this one.

According to an article I read about a month ago in the Wall Street Journal, Zumba classes attract 15 million people each week. Talk about a huge reach! In addition, music promotion is one of the methods used to draw people to Zumba. Hence, this is certainly an audience of devoted members who are exposed to new music on a weekly basis.

Now imagine this, when Zumba members actually really enjoy the music they hear, what will most likely happen next? Yes, correct…more listens, more streams, more downloads, and maybe even more tickets being sold at Maluca’s next show. Ahhh…such a beautiful relationship!

So, will we be hearing the sounds of Maluca playing in Zumba classes anytime soon? We’ll have to get in touch with Zumba’s music director, Sergio Minski. Until then, we’ll have to wait and see! #MusicxMovement
