If you're interested in the sociology and politics of life in Pueto Rico or the Nuyorican community, you may find this program interesting. If you're looking for alot of concert footage or alot of musical information about Salsa, skip this DVD. There is minimal music and no MUSICAL discussion of Salsa in this 1-hour program.

What a wonderful discovery to find on a clear screen young and youthful Salsa legends Ruben Blades, Willie Colon, Charlie Palmieri, "El Rey" Tito Puentes and "La Raina de la Salsa" Celiz Cruz. Made and released in 1979, this documentary has a bit too much narration but is nonetheless a magnificent snapshot of the evolution of the music. Anyone interested in Salsa must see this film. Complete songs are rare, as is music uninterrupted by the narration, but the magic is still there. Que viva la salsa.

This video has everything. It shows history from Felipe Luciano, the former leaders of the young lords to the best salsa artists when they were in their prime, Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Ruben Blades, Willie Colon and many more music. This video is my favorite video in my collection of salsa videos

This is an interesting video made up of film shoot in the 70's during the heyday of New York's Salsa movement.
It is not a musical but rather a look at everyday conditions of the New York Salsa community.
It has some small dance & music performances but I enjoyed it most for the insight it gave into the Salsa community during it's peak.
It was interesting watching the greatest artists of this community play for Weddings, & in schools & for free.
It was interesting thinking about the change that has occured since those days & now.
It is really only of interest to the Salsa history persons.
But I did enjoy it & I think it should be seen by all New Salsa dancers & music lovers.
