Starting around 1960, the first musical styles expressive of the new generation of New York Latinos emerged, most notably the pachanga. An adaptation of the charanga, violin-and-flute styles traditional to Cuban music for many decades, the New York version cropped up in clubs and nightspots in the Bronx among the first generation of New York–born Puerto Ricans. One modest club, the Tritons, was a site of incubation for the pachanga, the dance craze of the moment, and also of the experimental jam session of the Alegre All-Stars. This period lasted through about 1964.
