The 1970s was a golden age for salsa, as the Fania label projected a brilliant constellation of Latin American artists onto the world stage. Uruguayan-born Oakland percussionist and bandleader Edgardo Cambón celebrates the ongoing legacy of these salsa stars with his Tributo a los 70’s.

The project encompasses an array of irresistible dance rhythms, including mambo, guaracha, cha-cha, son, bolero and the horn-driven salsa dura sound that defined New York’s vibrant ‘70s scene.

The repertoire reimagines songs by era-defining artists such as Hector Lavoe, Celia Cruz, Ray Barretto, Johnny Pacheco and the seminal Cuban timba band Los Van Van. Cambón also throws some original compositions into the mix, elaborating on the salsa dura hits that caught his ear as a teenager growing up in Montevideo.
