Anyway, the salsa is attributed to a specific style, developed in the 60-70s by the Cuban and Puerto-Rican immigrants in New York and its stylistic derivatives, such as salsa romantica. The original salsa, by and large, is Cuban, although its style is a mixture of Puerto-Rican and Latin American styles, combined with pop, jazz, rock and R&B. On the other hand, Puerto-Ricans, more than other Latin American people, have developed and popularized this musical style. Colombians remained curators of the musical tradition of the salsa while other modern musicians continue their experiments within its style limits.

Large numbers of Scottish immigrants, speaking the Gaelic language, settled here in the 18th and 19th centuries, in order to escape from reprisals and economic difficulties. They brought their culture of the Scottish step.
