Today's Salsa CD reviews

Los Años De Andy Montañez Con El Gran Combo :

This CD was released in the mid 90s, although it contains a number of old songs from Andy Montanez when he was still with El Gran Combo. The combination of the 2 names suggests optimism and indeed this is a very nice CD. Although the recording itself shows its age and both Andy Montanez and El Gran Combo would develop and deliver more sophisticated music in the years to come, some of the tracks are really captivating and definitely able to brighten your practises or your parties. I particularly like “Oye Mi Canto”, a nice middle tempo mambo, “En La Palma De Mi Mano”, a faster one, the irresistible Cha Cha Chas “Las Tres Marias” and the classic son motuno “Cienfuegos Tiene To Guaguanco”. I guess you will also enjoy the guaguagnco rhythm in “Serrana”, “Pero Yo Me Quedo” another mambo, and the cha cha cha “De Que Presumes”. A pleasant Bomba closes this enjoyable CD.

Today's Salsa DVD reviews

Tomaj Trenda - Salsa with Tomaj - Latin Motion Demystified

Level: Beg

Style: LA

Content: Body movement and style.

General Comment:If you were born in the Caribbean or in Africa, you would probably wonder why anyone should need to learn the ‘Latin motion’. Similarly, if you have danced salsa for many years, you may not even remember the days when you needed to learn how to coordinate the movement of your hips to your feet and make your salsa look natural. Still, this is a common problem for beginner dancers, as well as for many experienced dancers who simply ‘try too hard’ and end up looking ridiculous by displaying a hip movement so exaggerated that it would look bizarre even to the most flamboyant of Caribbean dancers.

Also, even if you ‘just have it’ and your dancing is nice and fluid, it may not be easy to explain exactly how you do it and to break down the movement of each part of your body, beat by beat and train a beginner dancer. I used to do it in my classes and I know it is not easy. Tomaj did all this for you and compressed it into this DVD. He shows you how to move the hips, then feet, and then knees, how to coordinate all this to the beat of the music and most importantly, how all this relates to the weight shifting from one leg to the other so that the result looks natural. Tomaj explains all this very well, and his partner Susie shows it equally well. This level of detail, as well as the content, is hard to find in any other DVD, which makes this production even more useful. I would recommend it to all 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 ane-mailexchange 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.
