What is a Hambo? Hambo is a traditional dance that originated in Sweden in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is a couple dance in 3/4 time, danced to music played with a strong accent on the first beat and a tempo that varies from moderate to fast (100 to 120 beats per minute). The Hambo is a dance with a fixed pattern and tunes almost always have a corresponding eight measure structure.
