San Juan Feature
San Juan Music
Music is a source of Puerto Rican pride and is an inescapable part of nearly every festival, holiday, party, and even political protest. The brash Latin sound is best characterized by the music-dance form salsa, which shares not only its name with the word "sauce" but also its zesty, hot flavor. A fusion of West African percussion, jazz (especially swing and big band), and other Latin beats (mambo, merengue, flamenco, cha-cha, rumba), salsa music is sexy and primal. Dancers are expected to let go of all inhibitions. Most night spots, including restaurants, offer live music several nights a week, especially Fridays and Saturdays.
