Whilst salsa music and dance is popular in Peru, as it is in many Latin American countries, 'Peruvian Salsa' does not exist as an independent music genre or form of the dance. There are salsa artists from Peru, such as Antonio Cartagena and even Cuban style Timba bands such as Barbaro Fines y su Mayimbe, but these are styles of music that developed from outside of Peru. The same can be said of the dance style salsa in Peru: Peruvians dance salsa but there is not a distinct form of the dance native to Peru. Any claim by anyone in the United Kingdom to a brand of 'Peruvian Salsa' is contrived.
