Where’d all the Salsa come from?

The roots of Salsa originated in Eastern Cuba (Santiago de Cuba, Guantanamo) from the Cuban Son (about 1920) and Afro-Cuban dance (like Afro-Cuban Rumba). There, Spanish and Afro-Cuban musical elements were combined, both in terms of rhythm and the instruments used.

Rhythms from two main existing styles of music in the region were combined to create a New dance. This new rhythm was combined with American jazz, and taken to New York by Cuban musicians.
