Fania Records was founded by Dominican-born composer and bandleader Johnny Pacheco and
Italian-American lawyer Jerry Masucci in New York in 1964.
The label took its name from an old Cuban song by the singer Reinaldo Bolaño. Fania is known for its promotion of what has become known as Salsa music. The label started out as a small venture, but gained popularity after the success of its first official record, Pacheco's "Cañonazo".
The company is still in business.
