Fania Records, often described as the Motown of Latin music, had a rather unique series of events from May 22nd – May 25th, to celebrate the label’s release of a compilation of remixes of their legendary catalog titled, Armada Fania and Louie Vega‘s Elements of Life – Eclipse, which has the renowned DJ collaborating with a full band, and with a series of vocalists. Fania Records rented out the space to run a pop up store, to sell some of the label’s merchandise, and to celebrate the label’s storied history. Additionally, they partnered up with the web series EastWillieB – in fact, the night I was there, they filmed a dream sequence where the show’s main character Willie B dreams he’s a successful salsa singer.
So check out some photographic evidence of the goings on below:
