Live At The Palladium : Ray Barretto

Posted on over 9 years ago

You just got to love old salsa video clips. They are just facinating to watch and to know of how were the old days of salsa (Golden Age). Also, you get to see some of your favorite artists perform their songs in their prime. Here we have the famous Ray Barretto (you should memorize that name by now) playing at the super famous Palladium concert/dancehall. The Palladium Ballroom (for those new to the salsa culture) was in New York City which is accredited of spreading the Mambo craze in the 1950's here in the United States. This is because immigrants from Puerto Rico began moving to the US (New York City) at the end of World War II. Of course, MOST of you should know about the Palladium because of the famous show called "I Love Lucy" where Desi Arnaz (the husband in the show) used to perform regularly. Also, if you have ever seen the movie "Mambo Kings", thats where they filmed most of the shots.Anyways, enjoy this performance and the song!
