New Orquestra Gitano CD out
The overwhelming impression a listener gathers from Salsa Gitana is the love and sweat the group has put into its recording. They are obviously playing a music in which they deeply believe, and they play very well. The vocals are a little thin, but the horns are bright and sharp and the rhythms tight. The disc sounds homemade.

History of Salsa
During the early 1970's, a new kind of rhythm could be heard playing in New York.
The name “Salsa” was given to it. It is not known how Salsa got its name or who named it. Never before was this word used to denote a type of music, although the term “sabor” which means flavor, was used to indicate any type of music that had a really good beat. Perhaps that is where it originated.
  In the November 11, 1966, issue of Bohemia magazine, there is a caption under a photo of a singer that says: Pedro Gomez in full salsa.

Omar Puente's combo comes in February 2004
The Cuban Jazz Allstars return with a musical swagger that justifies their billing as one of Latin's great ensembles. Their exploration of Latin American composers has opened the music's borders to a far wider audience. Each group member is a virtuoso; together their talents culminate in the sublime sound of Afro-Cuban jazz. With one of the world's greatest conga players in Miguel Angaz Dias driving the music, the seductive voice of Tania Tania as its soul and the leader's, Omar Puente's electrifying violin at the heart of the group, no wonder. The concert will be in Queen Elizabeth Hall on Saturday, 28th February 2004, beginning at 7.45 PM. The price of the tickets are £17.50.
