About Salson

Classic Salsa- 60’s and 70’s style and salsa dura.  Original musicians hailing from Monterey Bay mixed with accomplished musicians from the Bay Area.

Salsa comes from Cuba with roots in Africa and has been influenced by Puerto Rico, Colombia, New York, and a few other places.

It is danced ‘on 1’ and ‘on 2’ with different variations, popularity depending on where you dance.

A few of the fundamental instruments include the conga and the clave.  Getting familiar with their rhythms will help you become a better dancer.
