This excellently produced documentary touches on the ties between salsa and reggaeton and the musical element germane to both genres, the clave.  Through interviews with prominent salsa and reggaeton performers and producers, and with footage of musical performances as a backdrop, the documentary examines the evolution of the salsa sound and present reggaeton sensation, discussing the development, fusion, and similiarities of both genres and its popularization in the Puerto Rican - pan-Latino community and its appeal worldwide.
