Joe Bataan
Joe Bataan
Filipino-African American Latin R&B musician from New York, born 1942.
Spanglish Fly
Spanglish Fly
New York City's original boogaloo revival band.

SPANGLISH FLY originated when DJ Jonny Semi-Colón (Jonathan Goldman) started noticing that amid his vinyl sets of old-school funk and soul, what really shook the dance floor was Latin boogaloo, the late-60s records of Joe Cuba, Joe Bataan, Ray Barretto, Mongo Santamaria, Joey Pastrana, Johnny Colón. the Lebron Brothers, etc. Goldman made it his mission to bring this music live to NYC audiences. Raiding the ranks of groups such as Bio Ritmo, Grupo Latin Vibe and the Hungry March Band, he recruited a bateria of percussionists steeped in traditional Latin rhythms, a horn section of young veterans from the NYC soul, jazz and brass scene, and an accomplished bass and piano players whose resumes are full of names of Latin Jazz giants.

In the summer of 2009 Spanglish Fly began playing shows in Spanish Harlem and North Brooklyn, eventually dazzling audiences at renown NYC venues such as SOB’s, Le Poisson Rouge, Drom, Sullivan Hall, Brooklyn Bowl and Fonda Boricua Lounge. They have toured the northeast, bringing the party to Philadelphia, Boston, Charlotte, DC and many points in between. Their debut CD, simply titled Latin Soul y Bugalú and featuring the hit single “Think (Pensamiento)” (Electric Cowbell Records) was released to enthusiastic reviews in the spring of 2010. Spanglish Fly's latest album, "New York Boogaloo" was released Fall 2015!
