Publisher Comments:

Salsa is one of the most popular types of music listened to and danced to in the United States. Until now, the single comprehensive history of the music—and the industry that grew up around it, including musicians, performances, styles, movements, and production--was available only in Spanish. This lively translation provides for English-reading and music-loving fans the chance to enjoy C©sar Miguel Rond³n's celebrated El libro de la salsa.

Rond³n tells the engaging story of salsa's roots in Puerto Rico, Cuba, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, and Venezuela, and of its emergence and development in the 1960s as a distinct musical movement in New York. Rond³n presents salsa as a truly pan-Caribbean phenomenon, emerging in the migrations and interactions, the celebrations and conflicts that marked the region. Although salsa is rooted in urban culture, Rond³n explains, it is also a commercial product produced and shaped by professional musicians, record producers, and the music industry. For this first English-language edition, Rond³n has added a new chapter to bring the story of salsa up to the present.

Review:

"Venezuelan TV producer Rondn documented salsa music from the 1950s to the 1970s in this survey, first published in Spanish in 1980, but not available in English until now. With an added update to the present, the comprehensive chronicle traces salsa's evolution, beginning with the 1940s merger of jazz and Cuban rhythms by Machito and his Afro-Cubans. The popularity of that group, along with the bands of Tito Puente and Tito Rodrguez, led to the revitalization of New York's declining Palladium ballroom in 1947. Crossing continents, from New York City and Puerto Rico to Venezuela, Rondn examines salsa's working-class origins, conceived, nurtured and developed in the urban barrio as a type of music 'produced not for the luxurious ballroom but for hard life on the street,' and he relates the difficulties of marginalized barrio life to the music's international appeal. Along with insightful analyses of styles, music, movements. performances, production and marketing, the book offers detailed coverage of such highly influential talents as Willie Coln, Eddie Palmieri and Ray Barretto. The concluding 'Basic Discography' serves as a great collecting guide." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
