Frankie Martinez is widely recognized as one of the best Salsa/Mambo dancers in the world — and he is my personal favorite. Here he is performing in Korea with one of his regular performance partners, Lori Perez. If I’m not mistaken, the clip is from sometime in 2003 or 2004.
The routine is not a traditional Salsa/Mambo/Chachacha partner routine, but it is still cool nonetheless. Frankie’s body movement is just phenomenal. The song is called “Yo Soy Babalu” by Richie Ray and Bobby Cruz.
