Sept.1, New York Hilton, 8/28-9/2

13th Annual International Salsa Dance & Music Festival & 2nd Annual New York Bachata Festival-a major play for lovers of Latin Dance music.

First introduced after WWII from Cuba into the U.S., the music has played
throughout metro areas since the 50s. Popular bands have included
Los Van Van, Eddie Palmieri, Hector Lavoe, Larry Harlow, Celia Cruz,
Willie Colon, Johnny Pacheco, Ray Barretto and the Fania All-Stars,

From Cuba to New York’s Nuyorican community, the music has survived and exploded. From the Dominican Republic, the Merenegue; from Columbia, the Cumba, from Puerto Rico, the Bomba and Plena, with
Latin Jazz as the new mainstream form of music. The main dance has evolved as the Mambo or Salsa On 2. If you’re not on it, you’re out of it.
The music is hot, the dancing is spirited, the players are passionate.
Salsa is everywhere.
