THE Joe Bataan, THE legendary musician from NYC, king of Latin Soul…from the streets of El Barrio (Spanish Harlem) in his teenage years, to recording eight essential albums for seminal label Fania Records, to founding his imprint Salsoul and pioneering a new music genre (hip hop) with his smash hit Rap-O Clap-O, to his most recent release «Call My Name» on Vampisoul, Joe Bataan’s stunning and everlasting career spans six long decades, and the list of achievements is simply too long to list here.
