Salsa Legend and Social Media Giant, Willie Colón

Willie y Hector

Trombonist, composer, arranger, producer, actor, politician, and outspoken social media giant. Salsa superstar Willie Colón‘s life has not been boring, nor has it gone ignored.

The Nuyorican legend first rose to international acclaim with the incredible streak of albums he recorded for Fania Records in the 70s, which found him playing alongside fellow legends such as Hector Lavoe and Rubén Blades. With Blades, in 1978, he made the multi-million-selling Siembra, described by many as “salsa’s Sgt. Pepper’s.”
