Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Originating from Afro-American rhythms of the Caribbean and Latin America, salsa has become one of the world's most popular dance forms. This 'sauce' is hot and spicy, a mixture of ingredients which gives it great versatility. Salsa is an ever-changing sound that adapts to, but also creates, new fashionable styles. Elements of jazz, funk, rap, as well as further Caribbean influences such as soca and merengue, have recently been included, forming a newly distinctive and further adaptively resilient salsa. This collection highlights salsa music in some of its most popular forms.
