About Fania Records
Like many American stories, the tale of Fania comes from the boroughs and inner city barrios of New York City. In the early 60’s, young Latin musicians brought the music from their homelands into the Great Apple and thus began a great period of musical reinvention and free cooperation amongst the melting pot of cultures living in the city.
Fania Records is the leading catalog of tropical music in existence and is a part of Emusica Records, LLC. Fania’s catalog includes landmark recordings by virtually every luminary of the genre including Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Ruben Blades, Hector Lavoe, Willie Colon, Johnny Pacheco, Eddie Palmieri, Ray Barretto and Larry Harlow among many others.
