PEdagogy in East Harlem

Richie,

I'd like to thank you for all the time you put into your response, and for your expertise. It was extremely helpful.
I'm wondering what your response --and everyone else's-- is to some of the films aired recently on Channel 13's Cantos Latinos?
The Boys Harbor film (Mi MAmbo) hasn't aired yet, but i expect it to have mixed reviews (particularly among the kids i know who were in it!)
I was particulary bowled over by "From Mambo to Hip-Hop: A south Bronx tale.
Did anyone else see that? What was going on between the south bronx and east harlem in that time? i know the musicans travelled all over the place--but what about the music was specifially tied to one neighborhood or another.

And I'm desperately looking for the song "Se le Quema la Casa", about the fires in the south bronx. i don't know who sang it or wrote it.

thanks again,
Victoria
