1. “No Me Hace Falta” – Victor Manuelle
is one of Puerto Rico’s great soneros; I love most of his albums, but Travesia
remains my favorite. This is a great song to start off the list.
From the album Travesia
2. “Sin Sentimientos” – Grupo Niche
Irresistable salsa from the coasts of Colombia by Grupo Niche.
From the album Una Aventura..La Historia3.
3. “Te Regalare” – NG2
Just to prove that younger artists are still into salsa, here’s a great dance number from Puerto Rico’s NG2.
From the album Comienzos
4. “Corazon” – Gilberto Santa Rosa
Is there anyone more popular than Gilberto Santa Rosa
when it comes to salsa romantica? I don’t think so!
From the album Contraste
5. “Hijo De Los Rumberos” – La Excelencia
La Excelencia is one of the great NYC salsa dura bands and if you don’t get up and dance listening to this number, you might check your pulse.
From the album Salsa Con Conciencia
6. “Caridad” – Gloria Estefan
is alwasy good for a hot number and “Caridad” is one of the hottest.
From the album 90 Millas
7. “Se Te Mira” – Grupo Fantasma
You don’t normally look for salsa from a Texas band, but Austin’s Grupo Fantasma doesn’t fit into any musical mold. This number features their jazzy, big band sound and fuses it with something extra.
From the album Sonidos Gold
8. “Como Tiembla El Alma” – El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico
El Gran Combo is probably the most famous salsa band in the world. You’ll know why when you start moving to this number from their Latin Grammy winning album.

DLG is back after a decade long hiatus with a new lead singer and a salsa version of this Peruvian folk song made famous by Celia Cruz.
