Why New York, London and Tokyo?
In New York, Salsa music became a characteristic of Latin and Hispanic culture, which allowed it to differentiate itself from surrounding communities, and to be identified as an integrating power.
In London, Salsa music spread and became a dance culture with its own characteristics. In its infancy it linked to the story of one of the largest serial criminals in the country.
In Tokyo, Jimmy Bosch, one of the first Salsa stars, describes how this phenomenon developed in the antipodes of its origin, where Salsa music also has its own history.
