"Salsa in New Zealand. Salsa is a syncretic dance form with origins from the Cuban Son (circa 1920s) and Afro-Cuban dance. This style of dance has made an entry in a big way to New Zealand in recent years. It is a raucous, sexually overt style of dancing; whose videoed silhouetted dancers and feet bathed in the gentle cerebral soundtrack of the group Deaf Center creates an otherworldly nostalgic presence."
