Willie Colon

Live at the Hackney Empire

Friday, 16 July 2010

19:30 – 23:30

291 Mare Street, London E8 1EJ

London, United Kingdom.

Yup another latino legend performs in good ol’ London town and this time it’s the Puerto Rican, Willie Colon.

Willie is know as a musician, composer, arranger, singer, and trombonist, as well as producer, director and political activist. I had the pleasure of watching at the Roundhouse. If you like your music with a real latino edge to it, then look no further than the trombone busting Willie Colon,  he has written some of the greatest latin songs of all time which would include songs like La Murga, El Gran Varon, Idillio and Che Che Cole which Willie Colon adapted from an old African song.
