"As the sun began to set, and temperatures began to cool, the California King of Salsa/Latin Soul & Sensuality, Mr. Antonio Madrigal, came out and fired up the crowd with his trademark Salsa Brava lessons. With high energy, enthusiasm, sensuality & professional dancing skill (or what is commonly known as "ganas" among the Gente), Antonio 'broke it down' for a lot of us with 2 left feet, and guaranteed the dance floor would remain full for the remainder of the 10th Annual Oxnard Salsa Festival. Smiles were infectious, and many new Salsa dancers were born that day. As always, Antonio drew 'oohs' and 'ahhs' from the females in the crowd with his smooth moves, which in turn motivated the guys to get up on the floor and learn the same moves. You should have been there."

-- Miguel Suarez Orozco, EXCELSIOR
"Ah, 'SALSA BRAVA' . . . anyone with functioning taste buds will immediately salivate
at the thought of a volcanic version of this spicy Latin condiment."
