A musical icon in Latin music! Grupo Niche is – next to Guayacan (AF 2013) and Grupo Galé (AF 2014) – the most important salsa grupo of Colombia. Say what? Of the whole of South-America.
Founded in Cali in the early ‘80s by Jairo Varela and Alexis Lozano the band quickly rose to fame with a lot of hits by Jairo Varela. Lozano then left the group to start another great one, namely Guayacan.
We are proud to have hosted Grupo Niche in 1996 with their former star vocalists Willy Garcia and Javier Vasquez. Unfortunately Jairo Varela passed away in 2012; now the band continues his life’s work under management of daughter Yanila Varela.
By the way, did you know? That the Colombian TV starred a telenovela this year as a homage to the life and music of Jairo Varela, with all the big hits of Grupo Niche.
Enough said, time to put on your dancing shoes and enjoy: "Gotas De Lluvia".
