Getting a Salsa Groove On

Seth Kugel is one of my favorite NYT contributers and the author of Nueva York: The Complete Guide to Latino Life in the Five Boroughs. Once again he proves to be totally tuned into the Latina vibe and vida that we are all about. His article Getting a Salsa Groove On is a great run down on what is happening with Salsa in NYC and more importantly where it is happening. Read the article and look for his shout-outs to some of Casa Naranja's faves: MarchaLatina.org LaFarraNY.com, and NYRemezcla.com.
