Today we will continue with our list of festivals, so you can find one to attend during your next home exchange, or try to find a home swap to participate in one of these music events. We want to share different festivals, and this time we will focus on Salsa! Salsa is a style from Latin America, particularly Cuba and the Caribbean, that incorporates some elements of jazz and rock to the Cuban Rumba and Son.
More than music, the Oxnard Salsa Festival is also about the dance and the sauce. A treat to your senses. Hear it, dance it, taste it!
