Salsa Is Back!
by Judy Cantor-Navas | May 9, 2013
We don't mean to say that salsa ever went away – El Gran Combo are, after all, celebrating their 50th anniversary -- but after years of being pushed aside on dancefloors by reggaeton and bachata, salsa is officially back. Marc Anthony is returning to the form with a long-awaited new album; young artists and orchestras are coming out of San Juan, New York and Havana; and even reggaeton stars like Tito El Bambino have spotted a trend. We think it’s time to take some salsa classes -- or at least to open the windows and turn up the volume on this playlist of fresh takes on the original urban Latino sound.
