Biography

Led by world famous pianist and arranger Oscar Hernandez, with outstanding performances by such singers as Ray De La Paz, Hermán Olivera, Frankie Vazquez and musicians such as Ruben Rodriguez and Bobby Allende, this album is a long-overdue missing link to the music and history of Spanish Harlem. This album does not celebrate the famous figures of Salsa: rather, it is a glimpse inside the secret history of the Nuyorican experience. Hector Rivera, Orlando Marin, Tito Rodriguez, and Pete El Conde Rodriguez are not household names, yet their contribution to American culture at large surrounds us everyday in the popular music of such artists such as Marc Anthony and Carlos Santana, who both owe an enormous musical debt to their unsung masters of La Musica Latina. Spanish Harlem Orchestra has appeared throughout the USA and in Europe.
