Salsa turns 60 and is still very much alive, although without the drag of reggaeton |  culture and entertainment

Salsa, which seems to be losing ground among generations of young Latinos to reggaeton, still has many loyal fans around the world, who have just gathered over the weekend in New York to dance non-stop and pay tribute to this genre. .

Born among the Latin community in New York in the sixties of the last century, salsa, which is the result of blending various Caribbean rhythms, made the world dance in Spanish and had its great boom in the 1970s with the help of the Stars of the Fania All Stars, the “Latin Rolling Stones” as the well-known Puerto Rican producer and musicologist Richie Viera called them.
