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

2007 West Coast Salsa Congress

Now, while I'm on salsa hiatus (because of my injured hand) - I will still be attending the 2007 West Coast Salsa Congress in Los Angeles, CA (May 24th-27th, 2007). I have never been to the LA Congress (and to be honest, I heard last year a lot of people were dissapointed with the event) - but I'm looking forward to experiencing it first hand. I will be there to hopefully capture great dancers and moments, so I can share them with those of you that will not be attending....

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....
