Salsa: Latin Pop Music in the Cities
Born in New York in the '60s, salsa is a hip grooving fusion of jazz, pop, and traditional Latin melodies. Filmed in 1979, this video offers a documentation of the scene as it existed then, featuring performances by such stars as Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, and Celia Cruz. Besides being a performance video, this tape is a documentary about the roots of this exciting brand of dance music, transporting viewers back to Puerto Rico to investigate salsa's birth in the rituals of Santeria, a fusion of Animism and Catholicism. ~ Rob Ferrier, Rovi
