Salsa maybe more of a concept than a specific rhythm, but its infectious and vibrant sound has captivated audiences around the world. In Colombia, salsa took hold in the main Atlantic and Pacific coastal cities, where a distinctive style emerged and had a significant impact on the genre as a whole. Within Colombia, salsa is danced in clubs, discos and at carnival - dancing is widespread in a land where the latest salsa hit is heard everywhere, on your way to work, when you do the shopping, and when you go out with your friends. Featuring many of the best-known salsa artists in the country, The Rough Guide To Salsa Colombia is your introduction to this effervescent dance music.
