What tells one a song is Salsa??? The rhythm? The beat? The instruments used? The language? Are DLG a Salsa band? What about Gilberto Santa Rosa? They are so different... Modern singers and bands mix Salsa and other musical genres... like hip hop... is the result Salsa???? Salsa music is based on clave... Victor Manuelle doens't use the clave... are his songs Salsa?
