As soon as one picks up the basic rhythms of salsa, it becomes normal to discover that some unlikely songs in other genres contain hidden salsa flow to which the step-count can be applied.
—Seriously, “I Know What You Want” by Busta Rhymes and “Dibi Dibi Rek” by Ismaél Lô?
—Who would have thunk it?
—Dancers, that’s who.
These unconventional songs not only expand the catalogue of dance music available to each salsero and salsera, but they also change the way that such songs are enjoyed.
