Salsa Central was originally launched way back in May 2007 as an online Salsa and Latin Music and Dance Magazine. We featured current news, CD and event reviews, video and written interviews, articles, an events calendar, directory, shop, and more, and regularly attended, worked at and supported numerous events across the world.
Highlights of our time running the website included;
Various trips to NYC to interview some prominent artists, including Larry Harlow at his apartment in Manhatten, Chino Nunez and George Delgado in the Bronx, La Excelencia, New Swing Sextet, and many more.
Thanksgiving at Jimmy Bosch's house.
Running our own annual weekender, selling out every time
Running our parties
Handling PR for a number of CD releases
Driving 4 hours to Boston for the congress, straight off our flight from the UK and falling asleep missing the first night.
Meeting Lou, who ran El Barrio records at the time
Going to the Pulpos Hot Bread album launch party and interviewing Pulpo, with a cameo from Oscar Hernandez
Plus lots more amazing memories....
We took a little time out to focus on our work in the Group Exercise industry and didn't have the capacity to keep Salsa Central running, but now we've relaunched on a much smaller and more manageable scale, where we'll be reporting our archive of amazing footage and interviews collected over the years.
