Salsa Music 101
Well there are lots of different styles and opinions on salsa music as there is in every other style of music. Â When I used to work in a resort the managers used to say never talk about religion and politics because it always leads to heated arguments. Â I sometimes think they should add music to that list.
That being said salsa music is awesome and for a beginner dancer the best music (in my humble opinion) is what some might call pop salsa. Â The salsa that is widely played not just in salsa clubs, but on radio and tv as well. Â For all you just getting into salsa music I will save the discussion about the rhythms and instruments for later. Â For now here is a list of some great salsa artists to dance to.
1. Â Marc Anthony: Probably the first place and most widely known salsa singer, his songs are like crack for dancers. Â Here are a few of my recommends.
- Tu amore me hace bien,Â mi gente,Â valio la pena
2. Â Victor Manuelle
Slower and romantic with a great singing style. He also has great pauses and hits in the music that are great to dance to.
-He tratando, Aparentamente
3. Â Grupo Niche
Some classic salsa is always nice. Â I love these guys and some of their songs make me wanna move like its about to go out of style. Gotas de lluvia and Cali Pachangero
5. Â Other random salsa songs. Â Lluvia, Un Monton de Estrellas, La Rueda, Yo No Se Manana
