Gran Combo and Grupo Niche will perform at The Theater at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday, November 26!
Few ensembles have lasted half a century keeping unchanged its rhythmic identity, overcoming the stress of the record industry and resisting the vicissitudes of consumer culture as it has Gran Combo of Puerto Rico. Unlike other salsa bands, particularly those arising in New York since the late 1960s, our so-called "Mulatto Taste" have always protected their innovations and musical timbre of complex experiments, safeguarding their own, simple and rhythmic sound that been characterized since its founding, May 26, 1962.
Grupo Niche is a salsa group founded in 1978. Grupo Niche is known for both its vigorous, uptempo dance music as well as slower-paced romantic numbers. They have been very successful, and some of their songs are considered Classics of Salsa Music.
