The story goes like this that when the slave masters went to sleep, the slaves enjoyed the only time of true freedom and spent the nights dancing and rejoicing, thus keeping the rhythms from the land of Africa alive in their hearts, bodies, and souls. The practice continued and the original Caribbean music got mixed with the African rhythms, resulting in the initial form of Salsa dancing.
At the outset, Salsa was recognized as Rumba in Cuba, and Bomba and Plena in Puerto Rico. Then came the time when this exciting mixture of different sounds started to be played all around the streets of Havana, San Juan, and soon after in various nightclubs around the Caribbean.
