SPANGLISH FLY: part band, part celebration, hailed as the premier band of the Latin boogaloo revival, "single-handedly reviving sixties bugalú in NYC" (NBC New York). Boogaloo! that mix of Latin and soul/R&B music that emerged from the clubs, the street corners, the transistor radios and the pool halls of 1960s Spanish Harlem, "El Barrio." Bugalú blends Afro-Caribbean percussion and rhythms with the fervor, the feeling, and the bluesiness of 60s-era soul. 
Two female vocalists front a band of three percussionists, four horns, and swinging bass and piano/organ. SPANGLISH FLY's multicultural cast has origins in Puerto Rico, Ecuador, Japan, Argentina, and Upper Manhattan. They come together in New York City to create quintessential music of the US streets.
