Discovering New Salsa Music

Posted by Kendra on June 12, 2013 at 11:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Finding great salsa music is always my greatest challenge as a dancer, instructor, and as the occasional DJ here in Nashville.  My ears are always craving a fresh new sound to inspire new creativity in me and my fellow salseros. But surprisingly, when I search for new salsa music, I typically find great songs from the 1970's that I never heard before.  The song might be new to me, but I know it's very old to someone else. 


This week, I've stumbled across a great artist named Javier Vazquez.  He is a Cuban pianist who composed several great salsa tracks back in the 1970's, and I'm sorry to say that I'm just now discovering him.  Better late than never I guess. Two of my favorites by him include "Se Formo la Rumbantela" and "Don Anastacio."    Check them out below and see if this music gets you grooving as well, and check out his other tracks on Youtube as well.  His music is consistently good.  I haven't heard a bad track yet.  Might be buying up all his music soon.
