The History of Salsa

In this clip from "Chuck Vanderchuck's 'Something Something' Explosion," Chuck and Ramona break down the history of Salsa music. Salsa music started in the 1960’s and 70’s. Cuban and Puerto Rican immigrants wanted to create a music that honored their heritage and homelands, but also integrated the sounds of their new home, New York City. Using instruments such as the piano, sax, trumpet, and bass, along with percussion instruments such as congas, maracas, clave, guiro, these nuevo New Yorkers melded elements from their music back home.
