Johnny Pacheco

Relocated to New York during the late '40s, Johnny Pacheco learned to play sax, percussion and flute in high school. In September 1959, he left Charlie Palmieri's flute and strings orchestra to organize his own. With his first recording, Pacheco y su Charanga, released by Alegre Records in 1961, Pacheco changed the sound of music throughout Latin America and ushered in the "Pachanga" (a strenous dance) era which faded out in 1964. Pacheco and attorney Gerald Masucci founde the Fania label in 1964 and with its first album, LP #325 (Pacheco's birthdate) kicked off the yet unborn salsa era in New York City. ~ Max Salazar, Rovi

There is a pattern I see now. For Dominican artists it seems Pandora has the task of not mentioning their heritage or nationality. I'm not a nationalist, but as a Dominican, I feel sad and hurt that other artist's nationalitie s are recognized and Dominicans are not.

You are ALL absolutely right about Pacheco, he's Dominican 100% born in Santiago de los Caballeros, RD. Pandora researchers when posting a biography on Salsa artists do some deep research first.

Pacheco el mas original, el que conserva las raices cubanas de lo que dieron por llamar salsa. Y como el son viene de RD y se crio en Cuba ahi estan Pacheco, Ray Reyes,Santia g o Ceron, El Canario, Sexxapeal, Cuco Valoy para reinvidincar ese origen.

This bio about Pacheco does not clarify that he is dominican.

CUANDO SE HABLA DE PACHECO ES HABLAR DE SONERO Y PARA SONEROS LOS DOMINICANOS HAY QUE SACARLE SU COMIDA APARTE PACHECO EL CANARIO JOSE BELLO RAULIN ROSENDO RAY REYES SANTIAGO CERON EL FAMOSO SONERO CUCO VALOY Y MUCHOS MAS

robertoperez . 7 4 , I find it interesting that you mention Ralph Mercado. Not much of anybody gives Ralphy the credit he deserves for keeping Salsa alive. We owe him a debt of gratitude that won't soon be paid. He was a shrewd businessman and many disliked his business tactics, but I for one learned alot.
