Boggs presents a readable, exciting history of Salsa, showing how Afro-Cuban music was embraced in New York City and how it has undergone cycles of popularity and been replicated abroad.

Extensively illustrated with photographs of the bands and clubs as well as the key leaders and promoters, the book also contains interviews with top performers and others instrumental in making salsa what it is today.
