Bundle includes Ray Barretto’s album Que Viva La Música, on 180-gram Red vinyl, limited to 1000 copies and exclusive to the Fania and Craft Recordings stores, and the black Fania Logo Black T-Shirt

Que Viva La Musica just turned 50 and features Barretto at his peak of the “Hard Salsa” era. The album contains the track “Cocinando” from the famed documentary Our Latin Thing which alone makes the record worth the price of admission. Other key tracks include “La Pelota” and “Que Viva La Musica”. Recorded in 1972, the recording features his original Salsa band including Adalberto Santiago and Orestes Vilato before their storied breakup. Now available remastered for the first time in decades. 



  • Features “Que Viva la Música” an ominous crescendo of soulful percussion and wailing trumpets, followed by the warmth of Adalberto's soneos and the tune's exuberant chorus.
  • ALL-ANALOG mastering from the original
  • Pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Memphis Record Pressing
