On Sunday, July 11th, DJs Bobbito Garcia, Laylo and Sake One reinvigorate the vibrant ‘60s and ’70s Salsa sounds of New York City at their annual party¡SIEMPRE! A DJ TRIBUTE TO FANIA RECORDS.
Taking inspiration from the label’s groundbreaking artists (Willie Colón, Hector Lavoe, and Celia Cruz to name a few), the ¡SIEMPRE! crew blend Latin music (bomba, boogalu, descarga, guaguanco, rumba, son montuno, etc.) for the modern dance floor, adding in elements of hip-hop, soul, jazz, house, and reggae, making the classic recordings more accessible to a younger audience while retaining its authentic flavor.
Anchored by Bobbito Garcia, a global DJ legend for multiple genres and an icon for urban Latinos everywhere, ¡SIEMPRE! is also driven by DJ Laylo and DJ Sake One. Born in Puerto Rico to Dominican parents, Laylo is the co-founder of Liberation Lounge (NYC) and has ignited dance floors from Berlin to Brazil. Sake One is among the most respected DJs from the Bay Area (CA) ever, and in 2008, Fania released his Fania Live 03 mixed CD worldwide.
¡SIEMPRE! A DJ TRIBUTE TO FANIA RECORDS presents the classics of yesteryear infused with the consciousness of today, creating a unique event that will bring three generations of salsa fans as well as people of all different backgrounds together!
