A brief note:
'Salsa romantica', also known as 'salsa monga', is a sub-genre of salsa music that emerged between the mid 1980s and early 1990s in New York and Puerto Rico. It is often referred to as the most commercially successful form of salsa in the last 20 years, despite criticism that it is a pale imitation of 'real' salsa.
Among other well-known salsa performers who championed this genre are such names as Grupo Niche, Mark Anthony, Frankie Ruiz, Victor Manuelle, Tito Rojas, Willie Gonzalez, Jerry Rivera, just to name a few.
