The mixture of styles of the other versions of the song represent the multiple origins of U. S. Latino music; Tito Puente was a U. S. born Puerto Rican whose song “Oye Como Va!” was inspired by Israel “Cachao” López, an Afro-Cuban bassist. In the song. “we can hear not only the tumultuous social and cultural rumblings that characterized the 1960s but also their echoes, which are still resonating in the extraordinary assortment of blended sounds–from Latin freestyle to Hip-Hop to Reggaetón–created by U. S. -born Latinos in subsequent decades”. This song vividly demonstrates the interconnectedness, hybridity and transnationality of music through sampling and versioning across the Americas and Caribbean.
