Cumbia vs. salsa

Everyone must be familiar with the song "La vida es un carnaval" from Celia Cruz, maybe even tried to dance salsa on it... But the thing is, that this is cumbia, like it or not, meaning you shouldn't dance salsa on it. I often see experienced dancers even dancing ruedas on it. It may sound as a fast salsa, but the rythm is different.
Anyway, if no one suffers considerable damage and you're enjoying it, just dance.

No. "La vida es una carnaval" is Salsa or some other type of Cuban genre, perhaps son? Cumbia is very different. Look up "cumbia colombiana" on Youtube so you can get an idea.
