Salsa Music

When I first started collecting and listening Salsa music I had no idea what, where or how to buy. I'd never seen it for sale in Sheffield. I didn't know anyone apart from my teacher who knew anything about the subject. Now after several years of trial and error and spending a small fortune on rubbish I've amassed a reasonable collection of danceable material.

On these pages I hope to help you get a head start and not make the mistakes I made and hence save you money!
