FANIA | We love to see you dance! TM
Founded in 1964 by a Dominican bandleader and a New York City cop turned attorney, FANIA quickly rose to fame as the go-to-label and brand for Tropical Latin music. Frequently described as the Motown of Latin music, by the mid 70s FANIA was home to some the biggest stars in the genre, including Celia Cruz, Hector Lavoe, Willie Colon, Ruben Blades and the popular FANIA All-Stars.
FANIA All-Stars was the first band to sell out Yankee Stadium, and in 1973 was featured in the critically-acclaimed hit movie “Our Latin Thing”. They are best known for their performances in Africa, alongside James Brown, during the famous jungle rumble between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman.
Today, FANIA remains a leader in dance music through its events, remixes, streaming, videos and theater productions. Its treasure chest of more than 3,000 albums spanning over 50 years is at the heart and soul of its future.
