Head Sounds With Tostoni

Ricardo Ray introduced the term on the cover of its 1966 album Se Soltó (On The Loose), which includes Lookie Lookie, one of the first tracks under that tag. The breakthrough came when the American charts exploded with smash hits such as Joe Cuba’s Bang! Bang!, Pete Rodriguez's I Like It Like That and Joe Bataan’s Gipsy Woman, tracks that defined perfectly the freshness and coolness of the style and helped enormously Afro-Latin culture exposure in the US and abroad. Its reign as one the most popular Latin styles was short-lived and faded out around 1970-71 giving a free path to "salsa" to become the most successful Latin music style ever. Sadly, nothing could be further from the reality or significance of the original term. The one that celebrates the union of two rich and different cultures as one and the joy of music and dance. That’s why we want to express: Leave Boogaloo Alone! ¡Dejen Quieto Al Bugalú!
