A great mix of up-tempo mambos, guaguancós and son montunos from the Bronx-born timbalero and bandleader!

Bronx-born timbalero and bandleader Orlando Marín has been a part of New York's Latin music scene since his mid-teens when he formed his first band with vocalist Joe Quijano and pianist Eddie Palmieri. By the age of eighteen, Marín was leading his own orchestra. At a time when competition was strong and the top Latin bandleaders all battled for the title 'Mambo King,' Marín built a reputation for having one of the tightest dance bands in the city.
