“Salsa was born between the late 1800's and early 1900's. It's a blend of several Caribbean rhythmic and musical styles: Rumba, Son montuno, Conga, Guaracha, Mambo, Chachacha and others. This musical mixture is due to the contributions of diverse cultures, particularly the African and European cultural influences, which found fertile ground in the Caribbean region.. The African population played a key role in the musical,and economic, development of this new frontier.” http://www.salsaplanet.net/e_Salsaorigini2.html
