The Gentleman of Salsa
Puerto Rican singer Gilberto Santa Rosa also known as “El caballero de la Salsa” (The Gentleman of Salsa) is celebrating his 50 Birthday and for the very first time in Alberta, Gilberto Santa Rosa is doing a live concert with his original band straight from Puerto Rico. Not to be missed. A show that will be unforgettable! Gilberto’s music is specialized in Salsa and Bolero music. Gilberto Santa Rosa was born in Caroline, Puerto Rico. He has been nominated and won a Grammy award for Best Traditional Tropical Latin Album. Gilberto has also won 13 Gold albums, 13 platinum albums, and 3 Multi-platinum Albums. Gilberto Santa Rosa reached the fame with two well-known songs on the 1990’s. At that time the sensual salsa was the most popular rhythm in Latin America. Gilberto achieved a change with the lyrics of the new generation’s songs that would come out. The youth of that generation started having a much less liberal life. This new generation stopped dancing salsa sensually. Instead they began to dance on a more elegant way just like Bolero. This artist has changed the meaning of salsa lyrics and rhythm by adding elegance and a touch of poetry in his long and successfully career. He is living proof of how art impacts in cultures around the world.
