    It's so common in NY mambo and salsa to refer to the rhythm/form used that I can't see how it's notable in this example. Personally I find it interesting to know how songs are categorised.

    I think it's terrible the way so much Cuban music is actually covers of tunes from NY and PR when the Cuban fans just don't seem aware of it.

    Although technically not salsa, I've heard this song by the JuJu Orchestra in a few socials.

    It is based on Astor Piazzolla's "Escualo".
