This is NOT Salsa

Posted by Richard on 31st December 2014

Although I’m a huge fan of salsa music, with plenty of tracks in my own collection, I’m also a fan of… music. And so are a lot of our members. For some people hearing a song you know can be like a safety blanket when you’re entering a foreign world. 

Everyone is different – some love the thrill of going out, trying something new and hearing a load of tunes they’ve never heard before from a different culture. Some don’t. Those people need a little encouragement, and sometimes that encouragement comes in the form of a great song you know, but can actually dance to.

So here goes, my 'This is Not Salsa' playlist - which could be exactly that for you!

I started Salsa in early 2012 shortly after moving to Leeds from Brighton. I started learning at a small class in Huddersfield before joining in the fun at StreetSalsa a few months later.

I'm something of an old timer now, and you can find me doing pretty much any job that needs doing every Monday at Smokestack. I'm also part of the team at Leeds University Union's Salsa Society.

Great list Richard, good to mix it up a little once in a while! :D (also do love to salsa to some non salsa tracks as well)
