Excitement of Live Performances

The theatre darkens and the curtain opens. Soon, audience members are marveling at the layered spontaneity of their favorite songs. How the band ups the ante with a climactic blitz and then retracts into a descent. There is no listening fatigue whatsoever, as the artists entertain by constantly changing the music's emphasis and characteristics.

For a few hours, time has stopped in its tracks.

Here we list a select series of highly recommended DVD live performances (we stopped at 50!). For us, it would be an injustice if these vintage recordings were to dwell in obscurity. Shot all around the world, these live performances send a message: salsa isn't just for a small segment of the listening public, it's for everyone.
