In an effort to preserve our culture in the city of Miami, a total of 122 Latin musicians and I Alex Arias recorded a salsa song with the idea of establishing a new world record. 7 professional composers wrote 9 verses which is the body of the song where the lyrics explain from where is the salsa genre coming from and how this type of music was affected by the different cultures since it was born in the 1960’s, the interpretation of this verses where recorded by the most prominent salsa singers of our time in the city of Miami, Carlos Oliva, Eddie Santiago, Rey Ruiz, Roberto Torres, Isac Delgado, Aymee Nuviola, Hansel & Raul, Lefty Perez, and Chela Nuevo. The music arrangers wrote the charts and the musicians started to arrive, me Alex Arias did the logistics of the project, also the recording engineering and directing, I donated my recording facility for the recording, and mastering etc. In the past 50 years the longest salsa we have record of was 10 to 15 minutes from Fania All Stars, Eddie Palmieri, and some other LP records made by then. Technically it was impossible to record a 45 minutes song before the digital recording era since the analog tapes had a maximum of 15 minutes of recording time. This project was born after thinking about what I could to do to bring all the salsa musicians together and leave a legacy, create something historical. I wanted to give the younger salsa players information, also create something reflecting our culture, a project where a new record could be broken. A project that would allow all the salsa musicians of Miami to participate. And that’s how the Longest Salsa Song in The World was born. We want the cooperation of all of these artists in our community to be written as a historic achievement in the city of Miami. for more detailed information please call Alex Arias At (786) 261-6856. Thanks.
