Ten fun fatcs about great salsa bars and clubs in Havana
Listening to live salsa music, watching the dancing or joining in yourself, is a mesmerising experience. Salsa has a deep-rooted history in Cuba. Although the term "salsa" has been in everyday usage since the 1960s, historians are generally agreed that music that has salsa rhythms can be traced back to at least the 1920s in Eastern Cuba, when various music forms, especially Cuban Son and Afro-Cuban rumba, started combining their musical elements together.
