El Pikete – Timba de Primera Toma
:

More than other CDs, the impression I had when I first listened to this CD was to be in the middle of a club in Havana listening to one of the ‘minor’ local bands: for a number of reasons. First, the sound is quite rough, being the CD recorded live, with little polishing placed in the final cut. Second, this is text-book timba, as pure timba as it can possibly be, and well endowed to make you dance. The musically most aware of you may not be too pleased with the sound, and even less with the vocal parts and the brass section performance: cuban music, and timba itself, has accustomed us to better standards, still the feet do not seem to bother and dancers will find all they may demand from a timba CD.. most tracks are medium to slow pace and among them I find “Ay No Te Toca”, “Que Me Llege La Suerte” and “Este Es Mi Tumbao” the most convincing.

Jorge Elizondo - Learn to Dance Bachata Vol 5 Adding Sensuality

Level: Beg-Intermediate

Style: Bachata

Content: Styling

General Comment: The intimacy and sensuality which is lacking from the other DVDs of this series is explored in this volume. And it is done nicely; at the very beginning the instructor explains that the intimacy you will be lead into is not meant for sleazy attempts, but for an intimate dance with your own partner, a refreshing approach for a dance for which normally sees adjectives like ‘hot’ and ‘sexy’ overused as a selling factor. The volume is organised better than others in the series, as you clearly see what you are aiming at before trying to learn it. Most patterns are fairly similar, involving mainly embraces and cuddles. Given that you are supposed to execute this with your partner it is reasonable to expect that you already have a rough idea of how to embrace and cuddle, so the most useful part of the DVD lies in seeing how to incorporate it in your dance and time it properly with the music. It will suit mostly fairly beginner dancers.

Salsa articles

On2? Which On2? I am writing this post to all experienced salsa dancers out there, and in particular to all salsa instructors. I have a question which hopefully will spark an e-mail exchange from which I may understand a few things which are unclear to me. In order to put this into context, first a few 'facts'.

Fact 1 . Roughly speaking, most people dance salsa either On1, or On2 Modern Mambo (NY style) or On2 Classic Mambo (Puerto Rican style also similar to Cuban contratiempo). Today Modern Mambo is used more frequently than Classic Mambo at congresses and salsa classes around the world.. more...

 
The Salsa 10 Commandments: 1)You shall not dance out of time, 2) You shall not refuse a dance to a less advanced dancer , 3) You shall respect other dancers on the dance floor more...

 
Creativity, Style and Salsa: How can I be creative in my dancing? How does SuperMario come up with his incredible moves? Did Eddie Torres invent NY style? What is style? Who creates a style? What does it mean to be creative anyway?

There are no objective answers to the above questions. They all, one way or the other, depend on subjective views on the artistic expression we call salsa, on what we like, and on what we intend by salsa in the first place. But we can still say reasonable things about the matter and make the creative process clearer and possibly easier. What follows are some thoughts of mine, mostly borrowed from my maths background. I am sure all this must have been said already within the art or humanistic literature, and if you are aware of work in this area please let me know, so that I can learn more.
