Whether they are from Puerto Rico, Cuba, or even the United States, all of the best salsa artists and groups are featured below, with the order decided by actual fans of the best salsa music.

Vote up your favorites to see them rise to the top. Are you one of those people that doesn't like Tego Calderón or Manu Chao? How about Tito Puente and Héctor Lavoe? Let your voice be heard! All important, significant, and iconic names in salsa music music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. If you're not an expert on Salsa songs and singers, this list is a good place to start if you're wondering how to get into salsa music.

This list answers the questions "who are the best salsa music bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest salsa music musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the bands' music instead of just voting for the most popular or famous salsa artists (Puerto Rican, American, Cuban, you name it) that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
