Salsa: Afro Cuban Montunos For Guitar
Salsa has become quite a dance craze. Its popularity has grown from the Cuban and Puerto Rican
community to include most of the Americas, Europe, and even Japan. New Salsa bands are forming
everywhere from New York to Los Angeles, from Tokyo to Paris. But despite its increasing popularity,
many musicians find that Salsa and the other genres of Afro Cuban Music are still very difficult to feel
and play in an authentic relaxed way. This type of music with its unique concept of the Clave presents
quite a challenge for the aspiring young performer. In the past, the only way to learn how to play Salsa
was to live in an area where Salsa was already very popular so that one might connect with as many
authentic musicians as possible; learning one pattern here, another there, via a very slow learning process that could take
years if not decades to accomplish. Even though the process of immersing oneself fully and experientially in the music
style of our choosing is absolutely necessary for our musical growth, the need for concise, well written, and organized
materials, written by someone who knows and lives this type of music is also essential.
We at ADG, believe that Mr. Campos' books are doing exactly that. We believe that he has done a great service by
writing his first two books titled "Salsa: Afro-Cuban Montunos for Piano" and "Salsa: Further Adventures in Afro-Cuban
Music", and now with his latest book "Salsa: Afro-Cuban Montunos for Guitar". Mr. Campos is helping to expand the
area of Salsa studies to include all guitar players and students.
