Salsa music is exemplary of all things Cuban, in the sense it is warm, sensual and easygoing. Use the conga, horns and cowbell rhythms to take your hips for a journey. Just as molasses is transformed into rum, one of the oldest spirits of the world, Melao de Cuba transforms elements of Afro-Cuban and Spanish music into vibrant, danceable music that lifts your spirit and brings joy to your heart.

    I just got my dream job, and there is no better way for me to celebrate than moving to the Latin beats that flow in my Colombian bloodstream.
    One song I will encourage: La Vida Es Un Carnaval by the iconic Celia Cruz.
