Celia Cruz was one of the most famous Latin singers. Originally from Cuba, her songs have earned her fame around the world. She sang mostly Cha-Cha and Salsa songs and always had a lot of energy and fun! There are many different kinds of salsa music, ranging from fast to slow, and I've tried to make this list representative of that variety. I will admit that I am biased towards faster tropical salsa songs since I feel that they are more exciting and fun to dance to. Generally, Puerto-Rican and Cuban salsa are on the faster side compared to other types of salsa. So as you can see, most of the tropical salsa comes from Puerto Rico, and that's what it's known for. Of course, there are other kinds of salsa styles from other countries, so don't think that this list is comprehensive. Salsa music can be fun and uplifting, sensual and erotic even with sexually explicit content , or they can be sad and melancholy, about lost love and heartbreak.

Guantanamera - Joseito Fernandez. This is the original Cuban sonero and the track is the insignia of Cuban Music and an amazing feel good song, although you might not think it by Joseito's mournful look. Cheer up Joseito, you're a legend! Chan Chan - By Buena Vista Social Clu b -I love the life time opportunity given to these amazing musicians to demonstrate their incredible talent which remained in the dark for decades. Surprisingly for me this song was the first Son Montuno accepted by the young people at the discotheques. Byt the beauty of the song makes this irrelevant. Adalberto Alvarez - This Song summarises the Orishas dances and it's a very powerful song a Dance floor filler without any doubt.

In Cuba, dance is a part of life, and it's everywhere. Here are just six of the Cuban dances you can enjoy on your trip to Cuba. Modern, up-tempo versions are known as danzonete and danzon-cha. Danzon songs are all made up of two sections: a short paseo and longer melody. During the paseo, dancers don't dance.
There is so much good Cuban dance music out there that people do not know about. More and more, dancers are becoming more entrenched in just dancing to timba, mostly because that is all that gets played at Cuban dance events. But Cuban dance music is so rich.
