While the irresistible sounds of Afro-Latin music have long been a highlight of Putumayo collections, ¡Salsa! focuses on the upbeat, danceable style that has become a worldwide phenomenon. Featured prominently on television’s popular dance contest shows, tens of thousands of dance schools have incorporated salsa classes, thousands of nightclubs now offer salsa nights and scores of international salsa congresses and cruises draw in hundreds of thousands of salsa dancers. As a result, salsa has truly become mainstream.

 

“Salsa” is Spanish for “sauce” and, when used in a culinary setting, refers to something spicy that adds an extra kick to a dish. By the 1960s, the word “salsa” had become an umbrella phrase for a variety of Latin, primarily Afro-Cuban, music styles. ¡Salsa! features blazing tracks from Colombia, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and New York City, where the modern salsa movement took off in the 1960s and 70s. Salsa has since become the musical heartbeat of much of the Latin world and its reach has spread across the globe.
