Latin music icon Joe Arroyo died today

Today a great icon for Latin music past away and I want to share one of his most famous songs with those of you who are not familiar with his music. Although he's known for many of his Salsa hits ("La Rebelion", "En Barranquilla me quedo", "Tania") he was constantly inovating and creating a unique sound to the extent that, today, musicians use the term "Joe Son" to define his unique blend of cumbia, soca, salsa and other caribbean rhythms (for examples of this check out: "Te Quiero Mas", "Tal Para Cual", "Musa Original", "Centurion de la noche"). As a musician I will always be inspired by his music and legacy and I'm sure many of you will dance to his music at some point in your lives...that is, if you haven't already done so. Viva el Joe!!!
