Reggaeton-ABC · S


To get into top gear, someone driving very fast. A man that comes straight to the point and gets pushy with a woman.

According to singer Celia Cruz, salsa is another word for Cuban music. The word for Mambo, Chachacha, Son... for all of the Cuban music styles together. To be more precise, salsa originated in New York in the 60's, created by musicians from poor Latino neighborhoods. Having reached large audience outside the Latino culture, the name salsa turned into an umbrella term for Latin American music, from Bogaloo to Mambo over Son all the way to Latin House. The Cubans struggled a long time against this conception, but in the meantime they have accepted it.
