Is it mainly salsa romantica guys who release albums these days? I know Van Van only releases about 1 every 4 years. maybe the big classic salsa bands do the same.
It's not all salsa romantica. Don't know of too many 2017 releases, but 2016 had some great non-romantica releases from La Candela Orchestra, Ire Oyala, La Maxima 79, Los Hacheros, Tromboranga.
Those are just the release I'm aware of. I didn't come across the Curao en Salsa album until September 2017, almost a year after its release.
Recently found this from 2014..
