This week, it's all about the Boogaloo! ;)


I've chosen one of the most famous, and most covered, of the Boogaloo genre. In 1967, the great Jimmy Sabater wrote what would become the biggest hit for the Joe Cuba Sextet, "Bang Bang"! A joyful and exuberant mix of funk, R&B and afro-cuban rhythms that helped launch the Latin Boogaloo craze from the mid 1960's. 


It has been performed to by some of the greatest Latin dancers in the world and played in clubs, parties and festivals all around the world since its release.


I give you... the Joe Cuba Sextet with "BANG BANG"! :D
