What is a VINYL SALSA NIGHT?

DJs use the term 'vinyl' to refer to music played on a record. Before digital music files, before mp3 files, before CDs, music was recorded onto and played on vinyl records. Many great salsa bands from the golden age of salsa only ever recorded on vinyl and have never had their music issued on CD. Every single song at a vinyl salsa night is played from the original vinyl records.

Does it sound different? Yes! The sound may not be as crystal clear as a modern recording on a CD, but due to the quirks of the vinyl format and recording technology of the era, the sound can be more rich and full. Many salsa DJs today don't play music from CDs, they play mp3 files downloaded from the internet and often these mp3 files are copies of copies of whatever the original recording was. Salsa, just like any other music, sounds and feels better when the sounds are clean and rich, and the best sound for a vinyl recording is when a DJ plays the original record on a turntable.

What is the difference between a vinyl salsa night and a regular salsa night? The music focuses on forgotten, unknown, or hard-to-get songs that are great to dance to and that you won’t find anywhere else. Anyone can download salsa songs from iTunes, but vinyl DJs are dedicated to playing music that not many people have: songs that have been out of print for years, most of which have never been re-issued on CDs or digital downloads. Many of these records are from South American bands that never had the chance to leave their countries, and therefore are very rarely heard anywhere else in the world. They didn’t make much money, but they made music for the love of salsa and you can feel that passion in the music.
