La Balanga 1975

Roberto Cavalli, isdatchu?

"La Balanga" was the Bimbo Jet Band's successful follow-up to their worldwide dance hit "El Bimbo". These songs were further popularized in the Philippines by it's own specific and unique dance steps, probably concocted by the local record company, which involved holding hands and making circles in the air.  Ask me to show you sometime.

This is the first time I've seen this video from French television on YouTube.

It's an explosion of animal prints. Grrrowl! 

It's important to note that Roberto Cavalli rose to prominence around this time. 

Hmmm.... are these Cavalli's handiwork?

Then there is the lone male dancer to add a dose of testosterone (who are they kidding!) to the scene.

Afros and cutouts everywhere! Cavalli gone wild!
