5 Notable Latino Contributions to Disco Music

Willie Colon without facial hair. Weird.
I'm a writer in my real life, and I'm always excited when I get to combine my love for old things with my writing gigs. My piece on Latinos and disco music went up on Latina.com last week, and I'm really excited. I put together a list of five songs from the era that show that disco borrowed as much from Latin music as Latin music of the 70s borrowed from disco.
Sigh. I get all misty-eyed when I think of New York in the 70s as a vibrant place with music happening, musicians sharing with each other, new dances being created on the spot...Overly romantic? Yes. But I think your iPod will thank you for adding the tracks on the list. Check it out here!
