If you where not born in a Latino Country, or surrounded by Latino
Music, or musicians that love Latino Music, when you first encounter
Salsa, Merengue or any other Latino Music & Dance, you get hooked
right away by the energy, passion and unique expression of these
dances, but you also encounter a whole new world of concepts, words
and hard to get rhythms.
