A pioneering salsa superstar, Willie Colón burst onto the Latin music scene in the late 1960s combining jazz with the tropical rhythms of traditional Cuban, Puerto Rican, and Brazilian music. As an acclaimed trombonist, composer, producer, and bandleader, Colón has fused musical talent, passion for community, and political activism into an extraordinary, multifaceted career. His collaboration with Rubén Blades on Siembra is one of the biggest selling Latin albums of all time.
