What we're about
This Meetup is dedicated to Salseros in the Washington DC Maryland and Virginia area and all over the world through the most powerful Salsa internet radio station, Salsa Empire Radio. Mambo, Cha-cha, Afro-Cuban, Timba, PuertoRican, and Latin Jazz music, essentially, the beloved rhythms that have captured the hearts and minds of music lovers around the world for almost 100 years!. There are plenty of venues out there, that are not particularly devoted to salsa, even if they say that they are. Salsa as a genre is being severely threatened. If you truly love this music, then you need to really support it. If not, it will disappear. Think about that. What would life be like if you could never enjoy salsa dancing again? That could be where we are headed unless we do something. The fear of salsa disappearing is what made me create this Meetup and that is how "The Salsa Empire" was born. Listen to Salsa on your device and please come out and enjoy yourself in “Strictly Salsa” events where you can dance to your heart's content without having to put up with other formats while you are waiting for a salsa song to come back on. Most of our events will be broadcast live on Salsa Empire Radio.
