Salsa CDs arrive in Lewis Music Library

Posted February 27th, 2007 by Christie Moore

In January 2007, the Lewis Music Library agreed to order some CDs recommended by the MIT Salsa Club, and they have begun to arrive. They will include salsa, merengue and bachata:

In addition, the list contained two books; the first one the library already had, and the second has now come in:

Morales, Ed. The Latin beat: the rhythms and roots of Latin music from bossa nova to salsa and beyond.
ML3475.M67 2003

Steward, Sue. Musica!: salsa, rumba, merengue, and more: the rhythm of Latin America.
ML3535.5.S74 1999

The Lewis Music Library is located in Bldg. 14E-109 and library hours are posted on the web.
