Celia & Johnny

As some would argue, the jewel of the Fania Records catalog, Celia & Johnny is a salsa masterpiece, a blending of two cultures—Cuban and Dominican—and two unique talents at the top of their game.

A large group of Cuban, Puerto Rican, and Dominican musicians living in New York’s Spanish Harlem and the Bronx, together with their children, first-generation Nuyoricans, began to lay the foundation of a music based on danceable sounds of their own countries. That music that was to be born — and that carried all the possible influence of “son,” mambo, cha-cha-chá and Cuban bolero; of “bomba,” “plena,” the Puerto Rican jíbaro sound, and Dominican merengue; plus the styles that preceded it in North America, such as the rhumba, Cubop, pachanga, and boogaloo — would become one of the most original musical phenomena created by the mix of demographics and sound in the United States: salsa.
