True salsa song play list

#1
I would like to find a youtube playlist with on 2 salsa songs.

I learned that most commercial salsa music these days are composed on a sound board and intended for on 1 dance (and often is missing that "tum-tum...pa!" on 4 and 2).

I want to train my brain to recognize percussion section, but most "salsa" songs (and compilations) don't have much of it.

I know "cara de niño" is often cited as a classic son montuno salsa song - I just want more of songs like that.

Long story-short, is there a playlist (youtube, or just a textual list) of genuine son montuno salsa music?

The choices of Montuno's , is vast.

You cite 2 and 4 stressed , which is a Son staple .

IF you are stuck on only that style, then I will suggest Cuban music .There are other bands that do emphasise 2, but safer bet is Cuban..

Go to Latin Music ( it sells CDs and you can listen free to your choices )..
