We Like It Like That, Mathew Ramirez Warren, 2015, 81 min.

Boogaloo—which fuses R&B, doo-wop, and soul with mambo and other Caribbean styles and polyrhythms—is a vibrant sound that originated on the streets of New York in the 1950s and 1960s and went on to move hips all around the world. This fascinating piece of musical history is told through rare concert footage and visits to the old neighborhood with living legends Johnny Colon, Bobby Marin, and Joe Bataan.

Music: Latin Boogaloo, Afro-Cuban and Latin Soul, Salsa and Fania Records tribute DJ set with DJ Laylo
