Urban Bachata had some success there too recently but it didn't stick out. Also, don't forget about Cuban music back before Fidel. It was really big.

    Chileans seem to not be into Salsa that much neither. In Viña del Mar Festival the majority of the Tropical artists invited have been Merengue ones. Marc Anthony is the only Salsa singer I remember and he did it very recently (2009). Celia Cruz too and again did it not that long ago (2000). Johnny Ventura, Juan Luis, Wilfrido, etc. were all invited in the 1980s when that Festival was more respected.
    I agree most of South America with exceptions to Colombia, Venezuela and some Peruvians, salsa isn’t that popular. It’s a very Caribbean genre.

    Like I explain to Daven, my family is from Veracruz, there have been salsa songs dedicated to Veracruz
    there are salsa festivals in Veracruz, while none on regional mexican music
    and lastly, Celia Cruz like other Cuban salseros got their career started in Mexico not elsewhere
    There are tons of salsa songs dedicated to various places, people and things. It’s just isn’t popular in Mexico.

    I would love to visit Veracruz though.

    Like I mentioned before, it could be a combination of both culture and more ability to develop great vocals. The potential (factor genetics/morphological) for other Blacks outside the USA is there but since culture (factor environment) is not present for them they won't develop their talent. Coño I hope I make sense. Your point is quite interesting to think about though. It makes some sense. Maybe Blacks are more invest into singing that other discriminated groups and that's why.
    They do! Some of my favorite Jewish singers
