El Cantante Movie Review by Movie Addict (5/7/2008)

Salsa. The term was coined in the 1970s by young musicians like Hector Lavoe, Larry Harlow, Ray Baretto, Willie Colon, who wanted a different name for the kind of music they were playing.

El Cantante Movie Review by LoLa (8/4/2007)

When I first heard about the production of this movie and how Marc Anthony was cast as Hector Lavoe, I was very skeptical. First because Marc was way too skinny and looked nothing like the great Hector Lavoe and second because he sounded nothing like him when he sang. However, last night I was proved wrong. Marc Anthony...
