The story line is not excellent but the latin dancing and music is exciting and urges one to also get up and dance. Chayanne and Vanessa Williams are great performers in this movie and those latin american dancers are just so perfect.Their glittery fanfare is wondeful to see. Somehow this film goes after Dirty Dancing but the result is not so good.

This two-box set is good value for money, and you can acutally learn a pretty impressive routine from this. The instructions are clear and it's much better than some of the other Salsa videos I've seen. However, I would have preferred some more steps that you can do on your own, as this video is very couple orientated. I have seen much better dancers than Carlos Paz and the music is very boring. But on the whole I still regard this as a Salsa instructional video that's worth buying

Cuban novelist Carpentier (1904-80) was also a musician, music critic, librettist, and radio show producer, well equipped to handle the primary sources he gathered for his 1946 work. His narrative skills are put to happy use in this first English translation as he traces (and perhaps sometimes imagines) how European, West Indian, and African musical influences shaped a uniquely Cuban sound in religious, popular, dance, and art music. A political thinker, Carpentier uncovered major figures in Cuban music history whom other encyclopedias of the time overlooked. Readers, however, should not rely on this book for an up-to-date account of Cuban music lore but instead treat it as a document of its times from a writer who exiled himself from Cuba until after the Castro revolution.

Eminent musicologist John Storm Roberts of the often-overlooked role that Latin American rhythms, musical forms, and musicians have played in shaping American culture. The Latin Tinge shows how musical trends from Spain and Africa evolved into the Cuban son, bomba y plena in Puerto Rico, Argentinean tango, and the samba in Brazil. Roberts highlights pioneering Latin American performers who popularized Afro-Hispanic music in the United States: Cuba's Pérez Prado and Mario Bauzá, for example, swung New York dancers to the beat of the rumba, mambo, and Latin jazz in the '30s and '40s. Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim combined his native country's samba percussion with jazz structures and European harmonies and launched the bossa nova craze of the mid '60s; Mexican American superstars Carlos Santana and the late songstress Selena blended Afro-Cuban, rock, blues, Tejano, and Tex-Mex folk styles into an upbeat American hybrid. Roberts also details the Puerto Rican contribution to the making of salsa, the pivotal role of Puerto Rican Americans in creating rap, and the fast-growing popularity of merengue from the Dominican Republic.

"A sophisticated and insightful analysis of the complex relationships between Latin(o) popular musics and constructions of gender, race, class, and national identities among Puerto Ricans. Aparicio takes into account not only traditional Puerto Rican musics such as danza, plena and bomba, but also pan-Caribbean genres such as bolero, and contermporary transnational dance musics such as salsa and rap en espanol as well. Her post-modern approach to salsa is particularly provocative, eschewing nationalistic attempts at ownership by establishing salsa's multiple positions and meanings within various Latino and Latin American communities. Moreover, she powerfully challenges Latin(o) music's problematic representations of women and the marginalization of women musicians, contrasting patriarchal and miso! gynistic song lyrics with those written and sung by women musicians." --Deborah Pacini Hernandez, Brown University

w. Weighing in at a mere 176 pages, this snappy little volume sure packs a wallop! This is the Cuban music equivalent of McGowan & Pessanha's "Brazilian Sound," but with more dynamic layout, and exceptionally precise writing. "Musica!" features several geographically-centered chapters, exploring salsa traditions in Cuba, Puerto Rico, Columbia and, of course, the explosion of modern salsa in New York and Miami. Brief overviews of the style's spread into Europe and Africa, and a look at modern salsa-pop crossovers. Each chapter features a central narrative, along with numerous sidebars that at first might seem unwieldy and distracting, but are tremendously informative and fun. These include profiles of artists ranging from the superstars to the obscure and the forgotten -- Tito Puente, Ruben Blades and Celia Cruz share the dance floor along with The Mambo Aces, Jesus Colon, and Maria Teresa Vera. The writing is remarkably compact and informative.

289 pg. 1995

Probably one of the best introductory books written on the history, evolution and development of Caribbean music. Professor Manuel covers, with enough in-depth analysis, the "roots" and history of the music of Cuba, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica, Trinidad, Suriname and other small islands.
The book is well written and an easy read, as well as being informative, giving the reader an overview of Caribbean music. It is not all-inclusive of the "Caribbean Basin"...it does not include the music of Central America, Mexico and Venezuela. Nevertheless it is a book I highly recommend to anyone that is interested in obtaining an overview on Caribbean music from its beginnings to the different genres of today.

Our Price: $17.46
You Save: $7.49 (30%)
Book + CD, 276 pg, 1988

As the first chapter suggests, we're all outsiders...Puerto Ricans playing Cuban rhythms, Cuban players playing jazz, white guys arranging Latin dance music and Latin Jazz...the book at times is hard to read, owing to my lack of proficiency in reading music; however, for anyone who is reasonably well versed in sight reading the excerpts are short...the chapters on percussion are extremely easy to read--even for the "non-reader"...and uncertainties are cleared up by listening to the accompanying CD, which has patterns that lend insight into the intricacies of Latin music. The book makes a convincing case that there is room for an academic approach in understanding salsa, while making it equally clear that there are shortcomings as well. Well done.

 
My Music

My Music Is My Flag

Puerto Rican Musicians and Their New York Communities, 1917-1940

List Price: $18.95

Availability: Usually ships within 24 hours

Puerto Rican music in New York is given center stage in Ruth Glasser's original and lucid study. Exploring the relationship between the social history and forms of cultural expression of Puerto Ricans, she focuses on the years between the two world wars. Her material integrates the experiences of the mostly working-class Puerto Rican musicians who struggled to make a living during this period with those of their compatriots and the other ethnic groups with whom they shared the cultural landscape. Through recorded songs and live performances, Puerto Rican musicians were important representatives for the national consciousness of their compatriots on both sides of the ocean. Yet they also played with African-American and white jazz bands, Filipino or Italian-American orchestras, and with other Latinos.

In this comprehensive examination of Latin jazz, John Storm Roberts, British-born, U.S.-based music journalist and author of Black Music of Two Worlds and The Latin Tinge, details the diversity and history of this often overlooked genre. Writing for the novice, Roberts outlines the presence of Afro-Hispanic rhythms and musical forms in African-American jazz: exploring turn-of-the-century New Orleans, where the Cuban Habanera and Argentinean tango rhythms were synthesized into the ragtime of Scott Joplin and the jazz of Jelly Roll Morton in the early 1920s; the creation of the mambo by bassist Israel "Cachao" Lopez and the incorporation of the conga drum by Chano Pozo into Dizzy Gillespie's big band and bebop combos in the '30s and '40s; and the popularization of the samba by American saxophonist Stan Getz and Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim with the 1960s hit, "The Girl from Ipanema."
