On December 2nd, the latin dance community lost Juan Flores at the age of 71. Mr. Flores was Director of Latino Studies at NYU and an expert on Latino culture. His research focused on Puerto Rican culture as well as the ethnographic unearthing of blackness in Latin music. If you want to check out some of his work, the book From Bomba to Hip Hop is a great jumping off point.
Juan Flores was also a big fan of boogaloo. He loved it. So in honor of his love for boogaloo, today we are replaying one of my favorite episodes, an interview with Jonathan Goldman all about boogaloo.
