Fania All-Stars, “Descarga Fania”

On a sweat-dripping night at New York’s Cheetah Club in August 1971, a gathering of barrio musicians -- who came together as the Fania All Stars -- bridged mambo and soul and gave new meaning to the word “groove” with their now unmistakable Latin Thing. “Descarga Fania” had the euphoric audience clapping in clave rhythm, and captures why Fania became the Camelot of the Latin sound. – Judy Cantor-Navas
