100 Greatest Salsa Songs

Overview: Salsa is a Latin American genre that incorporates multiple styles and variations based in Afro-Caribbean music, especially Cuban Son of the early 20th. The evolution of this sound started to be developed in the 1960s and '70s by Cuban and Puerto Rican immigrants to the New York City area. The style started to be practiced throughout Latin America rapidly and its influence with jazz, rock and R&B helped to consolidate as a new form of music in the Pop Era. 

Criteria: This top 100 songs list contains the Classic Salsa (Salsa Dura), Romantic Salsa & other styles incorporated in the genre as plena, bomba, timba or son montuno songs based on initial and lasting popularity as well as influence and impact in Salsa music. (Note: These are Salsa songs by Salsa artists. Not the occasional salsa song recorded by non-salsa artists.)
