What is Cuban Salsa?

 

Salsa was born in the 1970s and can be considered the culmination of the evolution of Cuban music. Salsa is a set of Afro-Caribbean rhythms fused with jazz and other styles. Its birth has been much debated, but it is known that it comes from a fusion carried out by the inhabitants of the Caribbean when they listened to European music and then mixed it with their drums. Salsa has spread due to the immigration of the Latin American population, especially Afro-Caribbeans, to northern destinations, such as New York, but also to South America. Salsa is widely used in Puerto Rico, it is the traditional dance of Puerto Ricans. The so-called Cuban style is the original way of dancing salsa. It is, unlike the styles that have been emerging in recent years, the one that takes more elements and steps from all the dance that existed before or after. It is surely the most complex Cuban ballroom dance and also the most fun. The first steps of this dance were developed in the Sports Casino of Havana and other dance halls of the Cuban capital at the end of the fifties, hence the name it has in Cuba: casino, since it was originally called "the dance of the Casino". At the end of the sixties it regained its popularity and it has not stopped dancing to this day. The casino seems rather playful, rhythmic and lively and is not geared towards competition like other ballroom dances. It is, in a way, a ballroom dance, but in 'shirt sleeves rolled up' that is still evolving. However, for the different figures some are very complicated, there are several combinations of basic steps that must be mastered in order to execute them correctly.

 

What is Dominican Bachata?

 

Bachata is a dance music genre originating in the Dominican Republic, within what is called urban folklore. It is considered a derivative of the rhythmic bolero, with influences from other styles such as the Cuban son and merengue. Bachata emerged in the urban marginality of the bars and brothels of Santo Domingo. During the 1960s and early 1970s, disdained as music of the poorer classes, it was known as "music of bitterness". This concept referred to the state of melancholy caused by heartbreak, always reflected in the theme of his compositions. Its diffusion in those years was limited to a few stations, since it was considered vulgar music.
