Edgardo Cambón: Un Tributo A Los 70’s
July 21 @ 6:00 PM PDT
The 1970s was a golden age for salsa, as the Fania label projected a brilliant constellation of Latin American artists onto the world stage. Uruguayan-born Oakland percussionist and bandleader Edgardo Cambón celebrates the ongoing legacy of these salsa stars with his Tributo a los 70’s. The project encompasses an array of irresistible dance rhythms, including mambo, guaracha, cha-cha, son, bolero and the horn-driven salsa dura sound that defined New York’s vibrant ‘70s scene. The repertoire reimagines songs by era-defining artists such as Hector Lavoe, Celia Cruz, Ray Barretto, Johnny Pacheco and the seminal Cuban timba band Los Van Van.
