Flushing Town Hall Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

Flushing Town Hall Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

Spanglish Fly is dedicated to reviving and renewing the music known as Latin bugalú or boogaloo, the sound that sprang from the street corners, the transistor radios, the pool halls, and the clubs of 1960s Spanish Harlem. Fans, whether they’ve been listening to boogaloo since back in the day or just since yesterday, shake their thing to Spanglish Fly’s original tunes, doing salsa steps or simply freestyling it.

Orlando Marin, a contemporary of such greats as Tito Puente, Machito, and Tito Rodriguez, is the only orchestra leader from New York’s golden era of mambo who still performs regularly. Orlando formed his first band, Eddie Palmieri and his Orchestra and since then has played with several different bands. Grab your friends and bring your dancing shoes for an evening of mambo workshop and live Latin music, and see why Latin music still sizzles and why Orlando Marin is truly the Last Mambo King!
