Default Johnny Pacheco, co-founder of New York's Latin label Fania, dies aged 85

[The Fania All-Stars player and record-label
impresario worked with Latin music giants
including Celia Cruz and fostered a more intense,
political salsa sound]

[Johnny Pacheco, the co-founder of
trailblazing salsa label Fania Records,
has died aged 85. The cause was complications from pneumonia.
A representative for Fania said Pacheco was “
the man most responsible for the genre of salsa music.
He was a visionary and his music will live on eternally.”
Pacheco, a flautist frustrated by the low payments
he received for his recordings, founded Fania
with Jerry Masucci in 1964 to promote the
music of Latin Americans in New York.
The label became known as the Motown of salsa,
playing home to Latin musician giants
including Willie Colón, Celia Cruz,
Héctor Lavoe and Bobby Valentín.]

He will be missed.
