Word of the Week: Cachengue


From Manu: Cachengue means rumble, action, chaos… It can be either a fight, a dance hall, or a party. It always involves lots of people having fun or maybe fighting, which is for them in the “cachengue”, a funny thing.

Expression: “se armo cachengue” means it became a total chaos.

Cachengue is also used to describe what happens in a cumbia or reggaeton dance hall when people dance out of control.
