Night owl chat for salseros!

So, I’m Cuban, and I grew up in New York and L.A., which means that salsa music was and is a large part of my musical landscape. Nothing can have me so down that a little Celia Cruz won’t get me shimmying. So, after Barack Obama’s masterful performance at the WHCD, a little tour of the salsa world.

The ultimate Nuyorican, Marc Anthony:

La dama de la salsa, Celia Cruz:

He was there at the birth of salsa in New York: Willie Colon

If this doesn’t get you dancing, you must be a Republican.

And this is more of a cha cha, but it’s freaking Poncho Sanchez from the city of my heart, L.A.!

This is your late night Saturday / early Sunday dancing open thread.

    I’m re-watching PBO at the WHCD. Does anyone know what the magazine was that PBO joked about around 2:00 into the video?

    Every time I watch President Obama I relive several videos from the past. I hope you don’t mind LL, but I could not resist in wanting to share this AGAIN!

    Awwww, I miss Celia Cruz; she was divine! Was blessed to see her and Tito Puente at the Newport Jazz Festival a year or two before he died. The Buena Vista Social Club also performed.

    One of the reasons I love this place is the music that people share. Thank you LL for sharing the music for us night owls. I am absolutely convinced that music speaks a universal language.

      Kathryn, I saw some of that too. And I saw the guy from the NAACP and I want to get in touch with him to encourage him to please don’t give up on this, fight it all the way to the SC if necessary.

    This is wonderful to wake up to!! I looked salsa. Definitely makes me want to move. I love to dance, just not very good. I love the music posts.

    My kids bought dinner over last night. We were thru eating the in time to watch the President and Conan. PBO is such a master! We thought Conan did a good job. At least he wasn’t a dud.
