De Musica Ligera: Feliz cumpleaños Willie!

April 28th marks the sixtieth birthday of Nuyorican salsa legend Willie Colon. His career began at the age of fifteen and since then his musical style has gained widespread acclaim as well as collaborative efforts with the likes of Celia Cruz and Ruben Blades. The video below is grainy and difficult to see but it's an absolute treasure that will surely make you stand up and dance: Colon performing with the late, great Hector Lavoe.
