As Grupo Niche forged ahead and continued to release new music, they quickly skyrocketed to one of the top salsa bands in Colombia. The group is known for its upbeat, vibrant rhythms and slower, more romantic tunes. Grupo Niche is a Grammy-award-winning collective of powerhouse performers who continue to wow audiences yearly.
  • Jorge Celedón: Jorge Celedón is a Colombian musician and singer of vallenato music. Vallenato music is a Colombian style of music characterized by poetic lyrics and traditional rhythms of the Arhuaco, an indigenous people from the Sierra Nevada mountains.
