The latin beat was all the rage when my dad was a teenager and young adult. You can tell he fell for it in a big way with all the Mambos, Cha Chas, Rhumbas, and Salsas he has in his collection. And like I’ve said before, it’s hard not to dance when the bongos, congas, timbales, and claves are working their magic.

So get ready to hear, yet another musical trailblazer from Puerto Rico in Volume 161: The Latin Dance.
