Ah, women ...! Women are pivotal to nearly
everything in Lou Bega's life. As this charmer muses,
"Females have always been there at the center of my life; my
mother, who raised me with so much love and then my first
girlfriend..... There were women who made me laugh and those who made
me sad; real friends with whom I could talk about everything and women
who made me fall head over heels in love." The Monicas, Ericas
and Ritas of this world, to whom Lou Bega sings in his first
Number One hit, Mambo No. 5, all played a role in his amazing success
Lou Bega is a rising star whose debut album
underlined his fascination for the fairer sex. "With this album I
can express fully my philosophy of life, summed up simply as: Never
lose your "joie de vivre"; there is more beauty around us
than we can possibly imagine; you just have to look a bit deeper to
see how wonderful this world is. And most important of all, there is
nothing more beautiful in all of God's creation than women!"
These ideas are best expressed on "I Got a Girl," a song
from the album "Little
Bit of Mambo," where it all starts out with a woman.
"Some time ago, I had a girlfriend from Miami
who was Cuban. Whenever she danced, it was like a brilliant firework
display. I couldn't take my eyes off her. It was as if she became one
with the music." Lou Bega's dreamy expression tells all!
It was actually this dancing beauty that brought him
to Mambo. Nothing is better than the combination of fun and music –
certainly not for Lou Bega. The singer and dancer has found his
own particular way of combining the two and the musical result is very
Just as in Lou Bega's day-to-day life:
"The sun shines again after the rain," says Lou, a true
master of the art of living and a die-hard optimist. "This is my
motto in life, and I have always tried to live my life accordingly
which has helped me overcome quite a few sticky situations."
Lou Bega is the perfect incarnation of the
Latin-American love of life, so his choice of music comes as no
surprise. He discovered black and south-American rhythms very early
on, listening to Soul and Reggae until, aged 18, he went to Miami and
heard the Mambo classics. Since then, the Afro-Cuban sound of Mambo
has held sway. "I got to know the songs of the Mambo Kings
without ever imagining I would become one myself.
"Mambo No. 5: is a huge success, having sold in
excess of one million units in Germany alone.
Lou Bega's personality is stamped not only on
his music but also on his image. White pin-stripe suit, little
polka-dot handkerchief, elegant spats and Borsalino hat complete the
look, in perfect homage to the '30s and '40s. He has started a fashion
trend with fans all over the world copying the "Lou Bega
style" and is bringing back the concept of the "true
gentleman" in the best sense of the word !
It seems that Mambo and this born entertainer were
made for each other – "As a kid I was always singing and
dancing to the music being played at home." In fact, Mambo's
dynamic rhythms are synonymous with Lou Bega's background. He
carries a piece of Africa in him from his Ugandan father and inherited
his Sicilian-born mother's fiery temperament. Afro-Cuban rhythms,
Swing, Soul and Rap are mixed by Lou Bega to create his very
own musical style. With his passion for singing, melody and rhythm,
the King of Mambo has taken his audiences by storm. If his big idol,
Perez Prado, the Cuban Mambo King, could hear A Little Bit of Mambo
today – he would definitely be proud of Lou Bega.
Lou has touched a nerve in everyone, young and old,
who loves to dance. "There is nothing better than to go out and
dance the Mambo," he enthuses. "With the right partner at
your side, the fire is alite!" And as for the music – don't
worry – Lou Bega is in charge!
