Salsa term: Salsa Romantica (Style of music)

Belongs to the history of Salsa. It is a soft, commercial rhythm of Salsa with slushy lyrics about love. It's also called Salsa Erotica. It arises in the eighties and had its best times in the nineties. Tony Moreno (known as producer and owner of the label MP) had the idea of rearranging old Boleros and Ballads into Salsa songs. Many Salseros sniff their noses at this music ? but wrongly. What they didn?t see is that many people suddenly were interested in this music and dance because of the simple structured and very popular Salsa Romantica. They maybe never encountered the real Salsa. In a way the Salsa Romantica was the "starter drug".
