Overview

This two-disc set chronicles the musical confluence between Latinos and Jews in the U.S. Liner note contributors include Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin and bandleader Arturo O’Farrill. This is the first album of its kind to excavate and mine this cross-cultural tale of sweaty mambo dance-floors and the weekend Borscht Belt ballrooms of Catskills hotels.
 
The forgotten musical mash-up of Latin and Jewish, bagels and bongos, Spanish and Yiddish, manteca and schmaltz that’s been a bubbling undercurrent of American pop music since the early 1900s. It’s a story full of Jewish mambo dancers, Jewish salsa greats, beloved sidemen and record label chiefs on the one hand, and Latino bandleaders, singers, composers and entrepreneurs on the other.
