You like Prog Rock? How about some Prog Salsa

On a recent episode of World Cafe’s Latin Roots, contributor Ernesto Lechner from The Latin Alternative, discussed progressive salsa, and how salsa was influenced by the burgeoning prog-rock movement in the U.K. and the United States.
As Lechner says, there was a conscious effort by salsa bands to be as experimental as possible. Listen to the Prog-Salsa episode of Latin Roots below, and check out Lechner’s Spotify playlist featuring music by Sonora Poncena, Roberto Roena, Ruben Blades, Eddie Palmieri, and more.
