Get out and dance with the music! Every Monday night, you may want to join the Salsa party at Stellar, located at the corner of Victoria Ave and Taupo Quay.
Salsa is a syncretic dance genre from Cuba, as the meeting point of European and African popular culture. It later spread to Puerto Rico and the rest of the Caribbean Isles. Salsa is essentially Cuban with deep Afro-Cuban beats, and additional musical influences from Son, Guaguancó, Rumba. Salsa was later improvised to regional rhythms such as Boogaloo, Pachanga, Guaracha, and Bomba.
Johnny Pacheco, creator of the Fania All-Stars, who "brought salsa to New York", with members including Tito Puente, Ray Barretto, Willie Colón, Larry Harlow, Johnny Pacheco, Roberto Roena and Bobby Valentín, says "Bueno, la Salsa es y siempre ha sido la Música Cubana", meaning "Well, salsa is and has always been Cuban music."
