Great compilation of soul music recorded by latin musicians in New York in the 1960s!

The 1960s saw a new generation of young latin musicians rise to prominance, led by artists such as Joe Bataan, with pioneering styles such as boogaloo, which fused New York salsa with the sounds of African-American soul and RnB music. This compilation is a great collection of some of the most soulful moments from some of these soulful latin artists!

Check it out!
