HBO documentary El Espiritu de la Salsa debuts Aug. 9
The hot dance that is a mash of cultures, Afro-Cuban beats and sultry Caribbean rhythms, salsa (“sauce”) has a wide-ranging appeal that extends far beyond the Latino community.
Salsa is the highly energetic dance sensation sweeping the globe. Dancers have to be extremely physically fit and need to display high levels of athletic agility. Due to its fun and rhythmic nature, salsa dancing has slowly started to become very popular all over the world. From America to India, young people are going crazy learning and practising this very interesting dance form.
Just a typical Tuesday afternoon at work and my co-worker asks me, 'hey, you want to go salsa?' Salsa dancing on a Tuesday night? Definitely!
Hundreds of Los Angeles South American dancers were left "devastated" after the news that Monica Beresford-Redman was found dead in a sewer in Mexico.
Aventura may be selling concert tickets como pan caliente but Juan Luis Guerra will forever hold the throne for us when it comes to bachata tinged music. Listen to his new single here.
The legendary singer-songwriter will be releasing his eleventh studio album in June 8 (Capitol Latin) but starting tomorrow you'll be able to download 'Bachata En Fukuoka.'
It's refreshing to see a young salsero stick to his guns. Largely ignoring the route that most of his contemporaries have taken (well, excluding his brief cameo as Rubén Blades in 2007's El Cantante), Victor Manuelle continues to forge his identity as a pure sonero while still exploring within the myriad genres of Latin music without delving into pop excesses. He makes the type of music abuelita can gently bop her head along with and your freaky cousin can shake her ass to. And he's steadily becoming an on-demand alternative within the bloated Latin music market, especially since getting the nod from Univisión to co-host the 2010 Premio Lo Nuestro Awards here in Miami this past February. And his tour is getting "a little strong" like we say around here since the release of his thirteenth full-length last fall, Yo Mismo, which will surely be the base for his performance this Sunday at the James L. Knight Center, which is cool, but he's best in straight-up jams where he shows off improvisational skills some rappers might be jealous of. Check this operator out above, flamenco/reggaeton/salsa? Yup. And he's yet to screw up and record in inglés.
MIAMI (Billboard) - On February 19, salsa star Victor Manuelle co-hosted Univision's Premios lo Nuestro Awards, looking dapper before a live audience of millions. The figure he struck had little in common with the painfully shy singer with braces who first gained national attention in the '90s as a new face of tropical music.
