The Heart of Africa is alive and beating in Cuba- Dizzie Gillespie.
Afro Cuban music was developed by Cuban musicians of African descent in a transition from the drum sounds of Africans in 16th century Cuba, and passed through generations to the more modern sounds of the 19th and 20th century compositions. Cubans have always embraced this long tradition as a sacred-like jewel in their history. Dizzie Gillespie expressed the sentiment of Afro Cuban traditions when he said, "The heart of Africa is alive and beating in Cuba". This has remained true to this day

Many people all over the world, have asked, for the definition of salsa..... What does it mean.. Where it came from, and above all the origin of this music and this exotic rhythms!!!
Salsa…. Born from Mambo (Its African meaning is Conversing with Gods)
We don’t consider ourselves the main source in defining what salsa is, what does it means, where it came from?
There is a lot of debate about the place where salsa was born. Many of the old school Cuban musicians adhere to the belief that there is no such thing as salsa. Tito Puente, summed up their general feeling when asked what he thought of salsa by replying: “I’m a musician, not a cook.”
Salsa is a word that inspires an instant reaction in Latin music lovers everywhere. It is the rhythm, the dance, the musical excitement that sends millions of normally sedate non-Latinos to the dance floor where they meet their Latin neighbors, who are too busy enjoying the music to notice.
We want to spread the vision, that Salsa music and dance, is very therapeutic and a big medicine... This page, is for ANYONE who is into the INTERCULTURAL salsa scene, those that are willing to explore it, and integrate it into their lives.
This means, it's for those who are adapting to our traditional arts and cultures into a form usable multi culturally in today's global society.
Some of us are just embarking upon our SALSA journey, and others have been into it for many years, but we all share one thing in common; a love for this music, and dance, and perhaps a belief that our music can somehow be used to change things for the better.
