As stated in Mathew Ramirez Warren’s new documentary, Latin boogaloo is New York City—a colorful expression of ’60s Latino soul straight from the streets of El Barrio, the South Bronx, and Brooklyn. Boogaloo godfather Joe Bataan unites doo-wop charm and Latin sounds in his irresistible hits. Ray Lugo’s good-time, hip-swinging originals pay homage to the style’s greats, including his special guest, legendary pianist and Salsa King Richie Ray. In one of his first performances in forty years, Pete Rodriguez will join Lugo on the anthem he made famous, “I Like It Like That.” To heat up the dance floor, ABAKUÁ will show off the scene’s retro-funky moves as in-demand Turmix spins the era’s Latin gems.
