Salsa music for beginners

Posted on almost 12 years ago

I know it has been a while that we have really talked about music, so I decided to add more music related stories and resources on our website. I was asked a while back ago to a list more salsa songs that people could download. I was also asked, specifically, to what I actually like to listen to. I decided to do both.

Below, I have made links to the songs in iTunes from my current favorite playlist. If you don't know my style just yet, I'm a fan of classic-orquestra style danceable songs. I think these songs are great and if you will probably hear them at a good salsa club (if the DJ knows his latin music).

Now, I know not everyone may like some of the songs I recommend here. You might have to remember that I take into account, the rhythm changes, the instrument solos, the singer and the lyrics (I know spanish). So, just because a song might be slow, it does not mean it is not a good song. Some of the best songs are made by powerful lyrics which help with the rhythm become a great danceable song...

If you would like to recommend a song, use the forums and provide feedback on what artists you like for others to listen to.
