El Gran Combo is a Puerto Rican Salsa music orchestra that is considered “the most popular Salsa group that has ever existed”. The group recently celebrated their 55th Anniversary and chose to celebrate their milestone during New York City’s Puerto Rican celebration weekend, as well as a spectacular performance in Puerto Rico.
The historic nights (held at Madison Square Garden & Coliseo de Puerto Rico) included some legendary artists in their own right; which included Gilberto Santa Rosa, India, Jose Alberto “El Canario”, Ismael Miranda and others. The artists showed great chemistry as they duetted on some of the groups most classic songs.
Almost nothing was missing from their set: “Julia”, “Vagabundo”, “Un verano en Nueva York”, “La Reina” and many more tunes had the audience on their feet and singing at the top of their lungs.
While most of us would assume 55 years of live performances would have us feeling exhausted, El Gran Combo proved otherwise. Almost three hours of live singing, choreography, instrument playing, and an immense amount of energy, they showed the crowd exactly what is so GRAND about them!
