"What people generally imagine when they hear the words "Caribbean
music" or "Latin music" is "cheerfulness",
"liveliness", "lilt", etc. Certainly, without doubt, these are the

"The stories and histories of salsa music are still young and vibrant, unique to every community in which it is performed. Because it brings together so many different Latino musicians, ideas and musical styles, salsa has become a way of communicating both within communities and across nations."

You don't need to be from Cuba to play Cuban music. But if you respect it, it sounds deep and sincere." -- Paquito D'Rivera
