Salsa, the sexy dance music of the Spanish-speaking world, is making its way into the lives of millions around the globe. But the term "salsa" actually describes a multitude of different Latin music styles, including Son, Guaracha, Mambo, Rumba, Merengue, & Latin jazz. This book tells the fascinating story of salsa's origins & charts its journey from Cuba to New York's barrio, Miami Beach, & beyond. In more than 50 biographies & portraits, the book celebrates such Latin music legends as Tito Puente & Celia Cruz, the king & queen of salsa; Ruben Blades, one of the music's great poets; & Gloria Estefan, who brought the Latin sound of Miami into the international pop mainstream. Illustrated with vintage & contemporary photos.
