Excellent !!!!!!
Great job, great music and great rythim. The best salsa CD of the year. You can compare the sound with the 70's great salsa bands, is salsa dura! Thank's for the making of this great CD, if you want to listen great salsa without buying a CD about 20 or 30 years old , this is the ONE.
