OCR GCSE: Salsa
Salsa is a brash and energetic style of music that can hardly fail to put you in a good mood. This article has been written with the OCR GCSE specification in mind (as Area of Study 3 features salsa as one of its ‘paired dance’ styles), but could also be used to devise a scheme of work for KS3.
We will take a look at:
- The origins of salsa and its development from Cuban son
- The musical features of salsa and what makes the style so distinctive
- A few of the most famous salsa musicians.
