Politics of Rhythm

Politics of Rhythm

Sorry for the long hiatus. It has been a while since I have written or made posts in this website about Salsa in general. But please tune in every couple of days because I will post some interesting videos or articles. Let’s get back into the swing of things with this video.

“Politics of Rhythm is a chronicle of the Salsa Movement, brought to life through the accounts of numerous Salsa Players, whose experiences and knowledge provide a rich tapestry of culture and politics. ”

Feat. Willie Colon Papo Lucca, Oscar De Leon, Eddie Palmieri, Larry Harlow, Ruben Blades, Cheo Feliciano… just to name a few Salsa musicians. And let’s not even talk about the dancers!

Baby Salsa DJ… They just keep getting you younger

Posted on September 22nd, 2009 by by Dany J

Special thanks go to everyone that has shown love and concern for our Thursday Salsa party in New Brunswick. I really miss it too. I miss playing my records for such a warm crowd week after week. But please be patient because better days are ahead. In the meanwhile, I want to share with you two things. First, after one year of DJ’ing, please allow me to formally introduce myself as a Salsa DJ (check my DJ bio here). Second, please direct your attention to a short video that just keeps making me laugh every time I see it. If you like it too and it makes you laugh, please friend me on facebook and drop me a message on my wall. Enjoy. – Dany J.

Nuevotec Productions brings Salsa to the World

Posted on November 27th, 2008 by by Dany J

During the last decade, the internet has been a crucial tool in the movement of Salsa dancing. Social networking and video sharing websites have given dancers the ability to make artistic connections and share their footage of Salsa dancing. Mainly, sites like Myspace, Facebook and Youtube make communication very easy at the user level. However, at the professional level there are a few companies that feature our Salsa passion as a legitimate artistic endeavor.

Nuevotec Productions, a “videography” company based in southern New Jersey and Philadelphia, has made an outstanding contribution to promote Salsa dancing and help inspire enthusiasts around the world. Simply, the Nuevotec team – Allan, Harry and Dimas – cover Salsa events, socials and congresses. Their footage of performances, social dancing and interviews is featured in The following are some of my favorite videos.
