El Progreso con Roberto Roena (En Vivo)

This is one of my favorite live performances of this song "El Progreso" (translation "Progress") by Roberto Roena and his Apollo Sound featuring the wonderful voice of Carlos Santos. It is not a traditional song that you'll hear at the nightclub or salsa congress, but it is one of those great salsa songs you can listen to in your down time that contains meaningful lyrics, especially in the fast moving modern times we live in today. The whole album is here:En Vivo Desde Bellas Artes - Roberto Roena & Apollo Sound...

How to figure out what song is playing at the club

As I recover from an injury (salsa dancing casualty) in my apartment, I decided I should sit down and talk about things. I ended up going to a club weeks ago and hearing a song that I really liked. However, finding the song took a little longer than normal (yes, even for me). So, with that information in mind, I decided to share with you some of the techniques that I use to find the salsa song I'm looking for. I tried to make this salsa music episode a little more interactive, so we'll see how you like it. However, one note of caution - I was taking pain killers - which is never a good thing when you have me rambling on about salsa...

Omelenko (Silencio) - Larry Harlow
Vamonos de Rumba - Conjunto Clasico
Para Ochun - Hector Lavoe
Devorame Otra Vez - Lalo Rodriguez
Don Anastacio - Javier Vazquez
La Cartera - Larry Harlow
Son Para Un Sonero - Quinto Mayor
Figure it out :-) - hint, it is by Sonora Poncea I meant it's NOT by Sonora Poncea even though they mention 'Papo Lucca'.

Remember - if you ever want to find out the name of a song - you can always try our forums! Please tell people about these artists and support them by buying their music....

Salsa Music : Dancing to Live Salsa Music

Now, you might notice that when I'm slow in writing articles - its probably because I'm doing something else on the website (like making a podcast - remember, I do have a day job :-) ). Anyways, I'm pretty happy with this episode because I'm a big fan of listening to live music....
