Mambo Italiano is a novelty song that is a parody of mambo music. It plays on the similarity of the Italian and Spanish language, and includes some deliberately misspelled words along with some nonsense words.

This is such a good idea! But instead of so many US genres, how about things like reggae (Jamaica), chanson (France), flamenco (Spain), tango (Argentina), cumbia (Colombia), J-pop or K-pop (Japan/South Korea), opera (Italy), etc.

Reggae is kind of an easy one. Cumbia would have been a good, though. There is a limit to how many categories can fit, and I tried to balance some easier ones and some trickier ones. Maybe I need to make a part 2 version
