Summary: El Cantante celebrates the life and music of the legendary Puerto Rican salsa singer Hector Lavoe, a pioneer of the sound and sensibility that redefined Latin music in the 1960s and 1970s. El Cantante portrays an era when a new sense of national identity and pride took root in Puerto Rican communities across the U.S. Hector Lavoe's music was both a soundtrack to and affirmation of that awakening.
