Johnny Pacheco

Relocated to New York during the late '40s, Johnny Pacheco learned to play sax, percussion and flute in high school. In September 1959, he left Charlie Palmieri's flute and strings orchestra to organize his own. With his first recording, Pacheco y su Charanga, released by Alegre Records in 1961, Pacheco changed the sound of music throughout Latin America and ushered in the "Pachanga" (a strenous dance) era which faded out in 1964. Pacheco and attorney Gerald Masucci founde the Fania label in 1964 and with its first album, LP #325 (Pacheco's birthdate) kicked off the yet unborn salsa era in New York City. ~ Max Salazar

In addition Joel F Reyes and Max, Johnny Pacheco phrased this genre as 'SALSA', renaming from Latin Music' to Salsa music. When asked by a reporter doing a story on (at that time) the latest craze in dance music, to define this genre, Johnny Pacheco defined it and stated, it's a mixture rhythms’ from Africa, Cuba, Puerto Rico and it's like a sauce mix, a sofrito – it’s a mixed sauce – Salsa. And it stuck from then on. All Salsa lovers prior – knew it as Latin Music, Johnny renamed it. Ask him.

There is a pattern I see now. For Dominican artists it seems Pandora has the task of not mentioning their heritage or nationality. I'm not a nationalist, but as a Dominican, I feel sad and hurt that other artist's nationalitie s are recognized and Dominicans are not.
