Upcoming events

Van Van forever!

Los Van Van is one of the most important bands in the history of the 20th century. Though 1990s Cuba was pervaded by groups that mixed folkloric and traditional music with the musical trends of the day, and the beginning of the 21st century saw that process go even further, in the 1960s and '70s that Latino fusion sensibility was scarce at best. There were primarily two Cuban groups experimenting with mixing pop, funk, rock, and soul with their native traditions.

Interview with Willie Colón

 

 From Fania.com

Together with Héctor Lavoe and Rubén Blades, Willie Colón constituted the Holy Trinity of salsa - the three artists who took Afro-Caribbean music to remarkable levels of lyricism and sophistication.  If Lavoe was the movement's ultimate voice and Blades its poetic soul, Colón was the alchemist, the man who brought it all together.  He fostered new talent, developed a distinct trombone sound, wrote socially conscious epics and made Lavoe shine with his slick production work.  Here, Colón answers a few questions about his legendary career.
