Bolero refers to two distinct genres of slow-tempo Hispanic music and their dances. The oldest type of bolero came from Spain during the late 18th century.

The second type of bolero was also a slow musical form, from late 19th century Cuba. It was sung by itinerant trovadors (travelling singers) whose main accompaniment was the guitar.

The bolero survives today as a slow music and dance form.
