    Program Notes
    The Spanish word “salsa” means sauce and implies the spicy nature of Latin American food. Salsa music was first brought to the United States in the 1950's by immigrant musicians from Puerto Rico and Cuba. In New York it quickly became associated with Latin American dance music including Cuban son montuno, guaracha, chachachá, mambo and bolero.

    This salsa takes advantage of traditional salsa rhythms performed on conga drum, timbales, claves, maracas, cowbell and guiro. The bass line is also traditional with its emphasis on beat 4 and the upbeat of beat 2. The combination of these rhythms and instruments creates a festive, compelling energy upon which melodies easily flow.
