Soon, Azpiazú's style was followed by other Cuban artists such as Armando Oréfiche and the Lecuona Cuban Boys , which had extensive international tours in the 1930s. Their style has been often described as ballroom conga , since they used to borrow conga rhythms in songs such as " Para Vigo me voy ". [9] Among their numerous hits were boleros and canciones such as " Amapola " and " Siboney ". [10] This music movement, which also included many American big bands which covered Latin standards, was dubbed the rhumba craze . Notable bandleaders of the rhumba craze include Xavier Cugat , Jimmy Dorsey , Nathaniel Shilkret , Leo Reisman and Enric Madriguera . [6] Rhumba was also incorporated into classical music as exemplified by symphonic pieces by composers such as George Gershwin , Harl McDonald and Morton Gould . [3]
