Beats of the Heart: Salsa: Latin Pop Music in the Cities is a riveting documentary about the development of salsa music in New York City. Like many popular musical genres, salsa has a story that is rich indeed. In the Puerto Rican and Nuyorican neighborhoods of New York City in the 1960s, a musical and dance movement was taking over the streets, blending traditional Puerto Rican and Cuban rhythms to create a style all its own. This documentary covers not only the growth of the music itself but also the many social and political factors in the rise in popularity of the very new sound. Included is very rare footage from early performances of Tito Puente, and intimate rehearsals with Celia Cruz. Showing many all time greats like Ruben Blades, Willie Colon and Charlie Palmieri starting out and in very unique settings, the remarkable beginnings of the musical phenomena is beautifully illustrated. Get to know the music of salsa like never before in Beats of the Heart: Salsa: Latin Pop Music in the Cities.moreless
