"I do not want my son involved with an Indian princess from the jungle."
  - Jason's mother

Product Description:

A Brazilian princess (Laura Elena Harring, MULHOLLAND DRIVE) travels to America when her homeland is threatened with destruction by a major corporation. When she is prevented from arranging a meeting with the company, she and her boyfriend decide to raise awareness of ecological problems by dancing the lambada on television. The wicked corporation doesn't want them to any cost.

Plot Synopsis:

An Amazon Indian princess, in an attempt to save her rain forest home from the destructive forces of a greedy corporation, travels to Los Angeles in hopes of convincing the company to change its evil ways. There she hooks up with a rich boy from Beverly Hills and together they enter a nationally televised dance contest that the princess uses as a platform to spread her message of environmental awareness, while at the same time introducing the world to the sexually charged Brazilian dance known as the "lambada."


Production Notes:

  • Shot on location in Los Angeles, California, in Panavision; color by Fotokem.
  • The film features three songs performed by Kid Creole & The Coconuts: "Lambada a La Creole" "Automatic" and "It's a Horror," as well as the theme song "Lambada" by Kaoma, the group that started the Lambada craze. The song became a source of controversy when it was revealed that the song's producers had taken credit for what was, in fact, a traditional Bolivian melody.
  • "The Forbidden Dance" is one of three lambada films that came out in 1990 during the short-lived lambada craze.
  • Also known as "Lambada - El Baile Prohibido!"
