    From the 1940s onward, New York-based musicians helped shape Caribbean styles like mambo, cha cha chá and salsa, and had a powerful musical influence throughout Latin America. Collaborations between Caribbean Latinos and African Americans, who lived together in neighborhoods like Harlem and the Bronx, inspired jazz, rhythm and blues, and hip hop. — Courtesy Johan Kugelberg
