Charanga ’76 was a Cuban group formed in NY in 1976 and active until 1983. Their name comes from the traditional ensemble that usually plays Cuban dance music. In 1979 they released four 12” covering some disco hits of that year. They sang in Spanish and added some nice Cuban flavors to the originals. The first one was a cover of “Ain’t No Stopping Us Now” by McFadden&Whitehead, the others were all Chic themed songs: “Mi Amor Prohibido“, “Somos Familia” and “Como Vamos a Gozar“.
