Dust off your dancing shoes for an evening by the King of Latin Soul Joe Bataan. Joe hails from East Harlem, where he formed his first band in the 1960s—Joe Bataan and the Latin Swingers. His music was a fusion of Latin boogaloo and African-American doo-wop, and his eight albums included the gold-selling "Riot!" and classic hit “Subway Joe,” a showcase for his vocal prowess. In the 1970s, Joe played a pivotal role in coining the term "salsoul," linking salsa and soul music. As co-founder of Salsoul Records, he recorded three more albums and several singles including the hit "Rap-O Clap-O," which became an early success in the emerging Hip-Hop scene. In recognition of his outstanding contributions, Joe received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the New York chapter of the Filipino American National Historical Society in 2013. Experience the legend that is the King of Latin Soul at a thrilling, one-night-only social dance ¡VAYA! party at the Atrium!

Run time: Approximately 2 hours
