Cooked up a special little something for Armada Fania. Printed by the good folks at Post Renaissance- @ectorjavier_ water based ink for all the screen printing nerds. #armadafania #riceandbeanssound #hectorlavoe #faniarecords Vayaaaaaaaaaaa!
Let’s put the argument to rest: Salsa is a mixture of Puerto Rican and Cuban musical traditions, which, themselves, are “mixed” rhythmic traditions of cultures from around the world. But to be technical, Salsa is ultimately an expression of the Boricua Diaspora in New York City. Salsa is thus Nuyorican. Ahora tú sabe’.
Spring is finally here in Queens. An all-45s mix for you to open the windows, grill up some fish, stroll in the park, or cruise down the boulevard. Latin heat spanning multiple eras. Fania, Tico, Cotique, Ebirac, and Vaya are all represented.
