I recently had the pleasure to exchange some words with Bobby Marin, a legendary Latin music producer who was behind the Latin Boogaloo craze that took by storm New York during the 1960s. From our conversation, it became clear that Boogaloo has never gone away. Moreover, Bobby Marin is making his own contribution to the resurrection of this vibrant rhythm.
Back in the 1960s, Bobby Marin had the opportunity to work with the big names of Latin Boogaloo including artists like Joe Cuba, Louie Ramirez and Tito Puente, among others. Now, this experienced producer is actively involved in different project aimed at preserving the memory of Latin Boogaloo and old good Salsa.
Among his current projects, Bobby Marin has built a website where he is bringing music that has never been released before. Lots of Salsa, Mambo, and of course, Boogaloo. He is also working on a new book for Fania Records where he shares his life experience with the music he helped to define. Finally, Bobby Marin is collaborating with the upcoming Boogaloo movie We Like It Like That.
According to Bobby Marin, Latin Boogaloo is recently enjoying an increasing popularity in different places. Whether the resurrection takes place or not, Latin Boogaloo will always keep a special place in Latin music history.
