The Boogaloo Project, created by Amanda Cardona, is dedicated to preserving the history of, educating others about and supporting and evolving the art of Latin Boogaloo music & dance!  As a Nuyorican, Amanda was drawn to Boogaloo for a lot of reasons . . . it gave her a fun & unique way to connect to both sides of her culture: Latin & American, a way to fuse music & dance styles she loves: from Salsa to Swing & everything in between, and finally a way to learn more about her own culture & history.


From all of the above and inspired by conversations with her DAD, who exposed me to this vibrant, though seemingly short-lived style of music & having had the opportunity to see a Joe Bataan concert with her MOM; The Boogaloo Project was born.

It is a journey to be part of the resurgence of LATIN BOOGALOO.

what is boogaloo

what is latin boogaloo?

Latin Boogaloo is a fun, unique, funky style of music and dance that originated in NYC in the 1960s and has a really interesting history! It fuses the rhythms of African American rhythm and blues (R&B) and soul music with the Latin sounds of mambo, son montuno, cha cha cha & more, with songs in both English and Spanish. It was an iconic blend of sounds and connected to and with folks of different cultures & backgrounds. It is enjoying an amazing revival by musicians, dancers, and those who love this unique blend of culture & art.

Check out some of the artists who originated Latin Boogaloo as well as those helping keep it alive!
