Download Free Salsa Music: Violin Solo

This is the second version of the simple salsa track that I posted earlier. This time, I chose to go with a more 'Salsa Celtica' kind of sound with a Violin salsa solo. I also used the Cajon as the background drum beat (instead of the regular Cowbell and Congas).

Salsa Fusion: Masacote Dance Company

One of my favorite things about salsa dancing is the diversity of all the various kinds of dance that can be incorporated into the basic framework provided by salsa. In this series, I am going to share several videos that showcase the fusion of salsa with other styles of dance. The first video in this series comes from Masacote Dance Company from Boston, MA. For those of you who have not heard of Masacote, their leader, Joel Massicot, is both a musician and a dancer. He has a latin/salsa band called Ritmo Masacote. The goal of Masacote Dance Company is to bridge the gap between music and dance; Joel teaches his famous musicality workshop throughout the world.This performance is entitled "Afterlife", and was performed at Flava Invasion 3 on Feb 23rd, 2008. The routine is a mix of salsa with modern and contemporary dance elements. Enjoy!

Salsamentary : A Documentary of the Salsa World Championships

Our friend Alan from Nuevotec Productions has made an awesome documentary about the ESPN Salsa World Championships - which is being called a 'Salsamentary'. It is an amazing work to get to know how the entire World Championships started, learn about the people, the dancers and everything that goes on behind the scenes. Here is a brief description: Salsamentary takes a look at the journey of six dancers as they step on salsa's largest stage through its highest level of competitive dancing. Each dancer has their own reason for competing. Some enjoy the challenge of competing against the world's best dancers. Others want to build their salsa dance resume and credentials quickly through the event, which is televised on several ESPN national and international stations, as well as DVDs sold globally. The rewards cannot be expressed just in terms of the prize money awarded to the first, second, and third places.
