RECORD WHEEL #4/SIDEBAR #37: LATIN BOOGALOO WITH FILMMAKER MATHEW RAMIREZ WARREN

We Like It Like That – Official Trailer from Mathew Ramirez Warren on Vimeo.

I promised (threatened?) that I’d drop some Latin on you all for a future podcast and what better than to bring in We Like It Like That filmmaker Mathew Ramirez Warren to come in and talk boogaloo with me. We chatted about the inspiration behind the film, tracking down Latin music old-timers, and the importance of public-funded arts (save the NEA!) Then Mathew joined me in running down a playlist of some of our favorite boogaloo jams.
