Salsa book

31.10.11

Here's some recommended reading for you folks... and just in time for Christmas..!

Matt popped into class last week in Bristol with a box of books and a few of you wisely snapped them up! I'm only a couple of chapters in at the moment but am enjoying it a lot - some great stories about the birth of the UK Salsa scene... from the Colombian perspective.

There are some good stories here and some good insights into some of the characters who influenced the UK Salsa scene in it's early days.  Matt also shares some the personal experiences (good & bad!) that he has had in Salsa.  I look forward to posting a more detailed review once I have finished it...

... in the meantime check out the video Matt shot in Colombia... enjoy!
