16 years ago, La Época was founded in New York City for a local audience by Josué Joseph - the son of Alfonso Panamá - a composer, arranger, and bassist from the Buena Vista Social Club generation. Today, Josué Joseph is an award-winning musician, director, and international dance teacher/performer, and La Época has been an integral part of the development of thousands of dancers and musicians around the world.
La Época is the most comprehensive and ideal choice for your journey through the history of Salsa and Kizomba.
Six outstanding documentaries on the history of Salsa including a fantastic new release on Kizomba & Semba, plus five soundtracks with beautiful Afro-Cuban rhythms featuring some of the last-living pioneering musicians from the famous New York City Palladium Ballroom; all this awaits you - just clicks away!
