Discover Jazz: Little Puerto Rico
New York: Little Puerto Rico
Puerto Rican emigration to New York from the outset of the 20th
century had an indelible effect on Puerto Rican music. New York-based
companies such as Columbia, Victor, and Brunswick made most of the early
recordings of Puerto Rican music in New York.
