Oscar Hernández on the Importance of Inclusivity

Being born and raised in New York City, the music that I heard from every other window and door in my neighborhood was mainly the music of what was characterized as salsa later on. It wasn't called salsa back in those days, but it was the music of the big three, Tito Puente, Machito, and Tito Rodríguez; as well as Eddie Palmieri, Charlie Palmieri, Johnny Pacheco, just to name a few. And the great bolero singers and trios that our parents used to listen to, Los Panchos, Los Condes, Los Tres Ases. It was part of the Latino cultural revolution that was happening in the city of New York dating back to the 50s.
