Soundtrack features the greatest legends of Salsa!
Celebrate Spanish Harlem with Willie Colón, Tito Puente
and others from world famous Fania Records
Varèse Sarabande is excited to announce the SHINE – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack releasing digitally on October 5, 2018 and on CD on November 16th. Salsa was born on the streets of Spanish Harlem before transcending to a global audience, and the Fania label was the catalyst. The soundtrack to Shine mines the tremendous Fania catalog, featuring songs from Willie Colón, Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri and the Fania All-Stars among others.
SHINE is a story about two brothers, once renowned NYC salsa dancers, now on opposing ends of neighborhood gentrification, who must face each other in the shadow of their father’s death and a family legacy in the Spanish Harlem arts community. SHINE is a film that showcases the culture and tradition within the Nuyorican community with salsa music and street dance as a way of life. The dance defines the film’s central characters and echoes the story plot lines of seduction and love to anger and betrayal. The soundtrack to SHINE dives into the Fania catalog, and features many lesser known, but no less incredible songs.  It serves as not only a great introduction for those unfamiliar with salsa, but also a logical next step for fans looking to deepen their appreciation.
Dominican-born composer and bandleader Johnny Pacheco and Attorney Jerry Masucci founded Fania in 1964. Fania’s rosterincludes nearly all the original salsa greats; Willie Colón, Celia Cruz, Rubén Blades, Héctor Lavoe and many others.  Even salsa stars affiliated with other labels such as Tito Puente and Eddie Palmieri made great music with Fania during their careers.
