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".
