Superficial Overview of Popular Latin Music
19 December 2005 | by (Queens, NY) – See all my reviews

"The History of Salsa (Yo soy, del Son a la Salsa )" is not a great documentary (I learned other information from a roots music series Harry Belafonte narrated on PBS a few years ago) and it simply assumed too much familiarity from the viewer (I knew just about zip about salsa musicians.)

There's not enough analysis of what each artist they raved about had actually contributed to the genre.

I can't believe that in 100 years Celia Cruz is the only woman in the field.

But this is still worthwhile to see to get exposure to Latin music.
