“Salsa” Time ….. Marc Anthony single!

~~March 28, 2014~~

I have posted about Marc Anthony a few times before. He has a new CD which has been lighting up the Latin clubs and the airwaves. 

If you have followed salsa singer Marc Anthony‘s career you should know this year it will be 20 years since his Latin crossover. It is perfect timing for the multi-award music winner to start his solo world tour as it was announced on Monday.

The tour titled after Marc’s first release single this year, “Vivir Mi Vida,” one of his new songs to his new album which is scheduled to be released July 23. Also to mention “Vivir Mi Vida” has been number one on Billboard Hot Latin Song chart for six weeks as soon as it hit the airwaves and its first televised performance at the Billboard Latin Music Awards in April. It gives Marc Anthony, his band and fans all the reasons to celebrate. As Marc stated himself:

This new tour, ‘Vivir Mi Vida,’ is extremely special because it gives me the opportunity to present songs from my first production of original music in almost 10 years,” said Anthony. “I am really excited to meet again with all my fans and look forward to sharing with them my music’s journey.

Salsa music is a general term referring to what is essentially Cuban and Puerto Rican popular dance music. The term “Salsa” was initially promoted and marketed in New York City during the 1970s. The various musical genres comprising salsa include the Cuban son montunoguarachachachachámambo, and to a certain extent bolero. Salsa is the product of genres such as the Puerto Rican bomba and plena. In some cases, the term is also used to describe Dominican merengue, and the Colombian cumbiaLatin jazz, which was also developed in New York City, has had a significant influence on salsa arrangers, piano guajeos, and instrumental soloists.

Salsa is primarily Cuban son, itself a fusion of Spanish canción and guitar and Afro-Cuban percussion, merged with North American music styles such as jazz. Salsa also occasionally incorporates elements of rockR&B, and funk. All of these non-Cuban elements are grafted onto the basic Cuban son montuno template when performed within the context of salsa.
