I've been around salsa for quite some time. I've been dancing for 8 years now and meanwhile I learned to play almost all percussion instruments, started a salsa information portal in Hungary, organized some salsa party series, concerts and of course I've been playing as a DJ.
I'm originally from Hungary, now living in Istanbul, Turkey, also DJing here and there on salsa parties. As of the style I usually play mambo (I prefer the 'old', Palladium style songs) and guaguanco, enriched with some nice cha-chas, sons, pachangas, and of course latin jazz.
Mostly seen in Salsa festivals in Eastern Europe.
