苦难孕育文化,音乐与舞蹈则孕育欢乐。

包子老师说:“跳Salsa怎么能不知道自己跳的音乐有什么故事呢?”
Ray老师说:”文化知识就像内裤一样,平时不用显摆给人看,但一定要有穿。“
于是,就萌生了想做这个音乐专辑的想法,每周四定期在Fiesta官网首更,公众号延期一周推送。
在这里,我们会聊一聊音乐背后的故事,或许是有关音乐的历史故事,或许是介绍一张经典的音乐专辑。同时,我们还会根据推送内容附赠音乐下载链接。
希望舞蹈之于大家不仅仅是一个娱乐消遣,也可以成为一种生活态度,成为一种你自身的修养积淀。
现在,就开始我们的音乐甜旅吧!

相对应与上期聊的一个Salsa风格 -- Salsa Dura,本期我们来聊一下Salsa Romantica。

Salsa Romantica

Salsa Romantic is a soft form of salsa music that emerged between the mid-1980s and early 1990s in New York City and Puerto Rico.

浪漫主义风格的salsa音乐兴起于1980年代中期至1990年代早期的纽约和波多黎各。
It has been the most commercially successful form of salsa in the last 20 years, despite criticism that it is a pale imitation of "real" salsa, often called "salsa dura."
虽然该风格的音乐颇有争议,有人认为这是纯正salsa音乐或称为Salsa Dura的低劣仿制品。但不得不承认的是,20世纪最后二十年间的salsa浪漫主义风格的商业化成就是所有salsa音乐流派中最高的。
Salsa romantic arose at a time when classic, big-band salsa, of the kind popularized by Fania Records in the late 1970s and early 1980s, was taking a severe beating on the Latin record charts, owing to the merengue boom and the rise of Latin pop.
浪漫主义风格的salsa音乐出现的时期正是经典乐和爵士乐被Fania Records通俗化的1970年代晚期及1980年代早期,当时由于Merengue舞曲与拉丁流行乐的风靡,这两种音乐流派遭受到了沉重的打击。

To give the music broader commercial appeal, especially in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, emphasis was taken away from the hard-hitting orchestrations of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, and focused mainly on the romantic, softer aspects of salsa, creating a mixture of earlier salsa brava and the ballad style.

为了满足音乐的商业化诉求,音乐的重心开始从在1960、1970、1980年代均是主流的活力四射的管弦乐编曲转移到以呈现浪漫主义为主的民谣曲,这种现象尤在美国和波多黎各为盛。

Some critics of salsa romantic, called it a commercialized, watered-down form of Latin pop, in which formulaic, sentimental love ballads were simply put to an Afro-Cuban beat—leaving no room for classic salsa's brilliant musical improvisation,
The marketing of salsa romantic singers has often been based more on their youthful sex appeal than on the quality of their music.
一些批评家认为这种风格的salsa音乐过于商业化,可以说是不入流的拉丁乐:形式刻板;内容以呈现带点非洲韵律的民谣情歌为主,取代了之前光辉夺目的经典salsa即兴演奏部分;此外,浪漫主义风格的salsa演唱家比起音乐本身的呈现效果更为重视是演唱时的穿着是否性感。

For these reasons, the form sometimes has been derided as salsa monga (limp or flaccid salsa), as opposed to salsa gorda or salsa dura (fat or hard salsa).
由于以上因素的存在,此类salsa音乐有时被描述成为salsa monga(疲软松弛的),与salsa gorda/salsa dura(壮硕有力的)形成鲜明对比。
