Dj’s Guzz & Dab, long time boogaloo aficionados, join forces to hit you with “Cuchi Frito “ a dancenight that honours the 60’s vibe of Spanish Harlem. The place where great Cuban and Puerto Rican musicians mixed their Latin styles (mambo,son,chachacha) with soul and r&b of the black community. Boogaloo or Bugalu was booming with offshoots such as Shing-a-ling and Jala Jala. Ray Barretto and Mongo Santamaria were some of the leading artists in a genre that had a great following amongst young people. Joe Cuba Sextet and Pete Rodriguez scored nationwide hits with “Bang Bang “ and “I like it like that”. The music that was hot in the sixties is still very vivid today as worldwide a Boogaloo scene is still keeping the spirit alive. We intend to start a little Latin fire in Pacific Parc and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. See you out on the floor, Cuchi Frito por favor !!
