03/31/17: Film Screening and Musical Q+A of We Like It Like That: The Story of Latin Boogaloo

We Like It Like That - Boogagloo Film

El Museo del Barrio in collaboration with the Museum of the City of New York present a free screening of We Like it Like That: The Story of Latin Boogaloo as part of the Metro Mashup: New York Meets Havana series.  Stay after the film for a special musical Q+A with Latin boogaloo legend Johnny Colon and Joe Bataan, and legendary NYC Latin Percussionist Benny Bonilla, moderated by Latin Jazz great Bobby Sanabria. We Like It Like That tells the story of Latin boogaloo, a colorful (musical) expression of 1960s Latino soul, straight from the streets of New York City. From its origins to its recent resurgence, it’s the story of a sound that redefined a generation and was too funky to keep down. Through original interviews, music recordings, live performances, dancing and rare archival footage and images We Like It Like That explores this fascinating, though often overlooked, bridge in Latin music history.
