Since its formation in 1969 Juan Formel and his band Los Van Van (Spanish for “The Go Gos”) have been one of the world’s premier Latin American dance orchestras. They are masters of the songo rhythm, which they invented, and have continually developed their unique sound fusing charanga, son, jazz and their own songo and timba styles.

La Escondida. 2006.
