What is salsa?
Salsa is more than a mix of Caribbean rhythms!
It is more complex than Mambo or the Cuban Son, which people many danced in the 60s in the Latin American area "El Barrio" in New York. The inhabitants of this area, originally from the Caribbean had started mixing different styles of music and dances from their homeland.
Thats how the salsa got popular in America and later in the rest of the world.
Salsa is an exciting blend of extreme music.
The new types of salsa that appear have been salsa-rap, techno, merengue and reggaeton.
What is reggaeton?
Reggaeton is a passionate Latin-American music mix of reggae, Jamaican dance, American hip-hop and Bachata, which originated in the Caribbean. After it became very popular in Puerto Rico, reggaeton has also extended in discos and clubs in the United States and Europe.
Reggaeton is the perfect dance for parties, sultry summer nights and fans of Latin American music. The lyrics of reggaeton are mostly in Spanish. The lyrics of the Cuban reggaeton are often about Cuban politics and society. The instruments used for reggeaton are simple, but have an delicious exotic sound!
