In 1974, during the heyday of the New York salsa explosion, the Fania All Stars were invited to perform in front of 80,000 people at a stadium in Zaire, Africa. Featuring exquisite performances by Celia Cruz, Héctor Lavoe and the All Stars' many other virtuoso players and vocalists, the concert was captured on film.

Unfortunately, this precious footage has been available only in substandard versions, quickly becoming a rare collector's item... until now.

Join ImageNation Outdoors, the Historic Harlem Parks Coalition Film Festival, the Latin Alternative Music Conference and Fania Records for a special screening of this digitally remastered treasure! Restored to its former glory, Fania All Stars Live In Africa captures a particularly soulful moment in the history of Latin music. Don't miss this one.
