One day I said to myself that the first time I would ever go to New York, it would be to record a cd or to give a concert. With music I have had the opportunity to know many places in the world. With this production entitled "La Salsa es mi Vida" I have made my dream come true. The movement of salsa was developed in New York, in the decade of the seventies. From that city came Fania All Stars, Eddie Palmieri, Richie Ray, Rubén Blades, Ray Barretto, Larry Harlow, Tito Puente, Joe Cuba etc. These artists were an example to me and gave me the strength to start this musical path.
It pleases me to present you a cd full of original themes, with fresh voices, musicians of the highest level, interesting arrangements and an impeccable sound. The music you'll hear has such a tremendous swing that you can't hide the wish to dance and to listen to it many times. This musical production will make salsa your life as well, if it isn't already so?

With "Guasacaca" we present the instrumental part of this cd. Brilliant solos of Yosvany Terry, Pedro Emilio Rodríguez, Ralph Irizarry, Robert Quintero and Gerardo Rosales will invite you to dance. "Sorpresa Holandesa" is the official presentation to the world, of the first salsa singer born in the land of tulips. With this theme Astrid "La Holandesa" surprises many 'salseros' who never could imagine that a Dutch girl would be able to sing and dance like any inhabitant of the Caribbean. "Una salsa para Amsterdam" is a theme dedicated to Amsterdam and her marvellous atmosphere. We know that everyone who once visited Amsterdam, will feel nostalgia hearing this theme, and he or she who doesn't know Amsterdam will feel wishes to get to know her. "La salsa es mi Vida" is a theme where the fabulous Puerto Rican singer Frankie Vázquez tells the true story of this rhythm that steals many hearts. "Para el Rey" is a deserved tribute to Tito Puente. With his prodigious hands Ralph Irizarry transmits this feeling, supported by solos of Yosvany Terry and Pedro Emilio Rodríguez. "Echándole" is dedicated to all those people who emigrate in search of a better future. With the voice of Frankie Vázquez we transmit this message of support and we wish all of you all the best. Astrid "La Holandesa" interprets "Caramba", a composition of the Venezuelan Otilio Galíndez. With "Caramba" we give a message of solidarity to all those women who have been victims of mistreatments. "El Hijo del Sonero" composed by Ricardo Quintero is a spectacular rumba, where the strength of the brass section, the voice of Frankie Vázquez, the piano of Luis Perdomo and the rhythm of Luisito Quintero, Robert Quintero and Gerardo Rosales make that you won't stop dancing. Gerardo Rosales never forgets his native country and in each one of his productions he promotes the rhythms of his land. With the theme "Pajarillo & Bailen Joropo" Venezuela is present again. "Friday Morning" composed by Danilo Pérez is a Latin jazz with solos of Yosvany Terry, Luis Perdomo, Marlon Simon, Pedro Emilio Rodríguez and Gerardo Rosales. With this theme, full of virtuosity, we close this musical production.


Un día me dije que la primera vez que fuese a New York sería para grabar o tocar. A través de la música he podido conocer muchos lugares del mundo. Con esta producción titulada "La Salsa es mi Vida" he cumplido mi sueño. En New York se desarolló en la década de los años setenta el movimiento de la salsa. De allí salieron Fania All Stars, Eddie Palmieri, Richie Ray, Rubén Blades, Ray Barretto, Larry Harlow, Tito Puente, Joe Cuba etc. Estos artistas me han servido de ejemplo y me han dado la fuerza para emprender este camino de la música.
Me complace presentarles un cd lleno de temas originales, con voces frescas, músicos del más alto nivel, arreglos interesantes y un sonido impecable. La música grabada aqui tiene un sabor tan tremendo que no podrás ocultar el deseo de bailar y de querer escuchar muchas veces esta producción musical que hará que la salsa sea tu vida tambien, ¿si es que ya no lo es?

Con "Guasacaca" presentamos la parte instrumental de este cd. Solos geniales de Yosvany Terry, Pedro Emilio Rodríguez, Ralph Irizarry, Robert Quintero y Gerardo Rosales te invitan a bailar. "Sorpresa Holandesa" es la presentación oficial al mundo de la primera cantante de salsa que ha dado el país de los tulipanes. Con este tema Astrid "La Holandesa" sorprenderá a muchos salseros que nunca imaginarían que una Holandesa pudiese cantar y bailar la salsa como cualquier habitante del Caribe. "Una salsa para Amsterdam" es un tema dedicado a Amsterdam y a su maravilloso ambiente. Sabemos que todo el que ha visitado Amsterdam alguna vez, sentirá nostalgia al escuchar este tema y el que no la conoce sentirá deseos de conocerla. "La salsa es mi Vida" es un tema en donde el fabuloso cantante puertoriqueño Frankie Vázquez relata la verdadera historia de este ritmo que roba corazones. "Para el Rey" es un merecido tributo a Tito Puente. Ralph Irizarry con sus manos prodigiosas transmite este sentimiento, apoyado por los solos de Yosvany Terry y Pedro Emilio Rodríguez. "Echándole" está dedicado a todas aquellas personas que emigran en busca de un futuro mejor. Con la voz de Frankie Vázquez transmitimos este mensaje de apoyo y les deseamos la mejor de las suertes. Astrid "La Holandesa" interpreta "Caramba", composición del venezolano Otilio Galíndez. Con "Caramba" brindamos un mensaje de solidaridad a todas aquellas mujeres que han sido victimas de maltratos. "El Hijo del Sonero" compuesto por Ricardo Quintero es una rumba espectacular en donde la fuerza de los metales, la voz de Frankie Vázquez, el piano de Luis Perdomo y el ritmo de Luisito Quintero, Robert Quintero y Gerardo Rosales hará que no pares de bailar. Gerardo Rosales nunca olvida a su país y en cada una de sus producciones, promueve los ritmos de su tierra. Con el tema "Pajarillo & Bailen Joropo" Venezuela está presente. "Friday Morning" compuesto por Danilo Pérez es un jazz latino en donde hay solos de Yosvany Terry, Luis Perdomo, Marlon Simon, Pedro Emilio Rodríguez y Gerardo Rosales. Con este tema lleno de virtuosismo cerramos esta producción musical..
