Can You Feel It / The Voices Of East Harlem

Pedro Ortiz Davila "Davilita"(5/21/1912 – 7/8/1986) was a popular singer of boleros and Puerto Rican patriotic songs. Davilita was born in Bayamón, Puerto Rico, his parents however, moved to New York when he was only a child and settled down in East Harlem which is also known as "Spanish Harlem" or "El Barrio". Davilita learned to play the guitar at a young age and entertained his family with his voice. One of the places which Davilita frequented was Hernandez Record Store in "El Barrio".

September 29, 1998: Hip-Hop’s Greatest Day Two hundred old and new school rap artists assembled in Harlem. It could be said this display of unity went a long way in forever ending the proverbial East coast/West coast beef that existed for years. A sense of closure from the aforementioned deaths certainly was an underlying element here as well.
