#59 - Latin Roots –Venezuela’s Salsa Star Oscar D'León Continues To Improvise Every Show

Latin Roots – Venezuela’s Salsa Star Oscar D'León Continues To Improvise Every Show

April 24, 2014 It is a very personal Latin Roots today with The Latin Alternative's Ernesto Lechner here to tell about one of his very favorite artists, the Venezuelan salsa singer Oscar D'León. D'León is in his 70s and still going strong with a demanding style of improvisational salsa. As Ernesto will tell us, D'León directs the band using hand gestures and directions contained in the lyrics for a set without a net! Check out Ernesto’s Oscar D'León Spotify playlist.
