In New York City during the 1960s Eddie Palmieri created a rhythm called mozambique that was inspired by Pello’s creation of the same name. Although both rhythms are based on conga de comparsa frums, they do have no parts in common. [See: “The History of the New York-Style Mozambique” (Andy Gonzalez interviews Manny Oquendo).] Even the clave patterns are different; Pello’s rhythm uses rumba clave, while Palmieri’s uses son clave. Pello’s mozambiques are for the most part, in major keys. Palmieri’s mozambiques are mostly in minor keys. However, both groups primarily use chord progressions in a 2-3 clave sequence, and a trombone horn section.
