OCR GCSE: Salsa – Rhinegold Publishing



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.
