Salsa Lyrics – Me libere -El Gran Combo
49 Years performing – Wow!!!!
El Gran Combo was founded in May 1962, by Rafael Ithier. Ithier is still nominally its musical director, and he and saxophonist Eddie “La Bala” Pérez are the only remaining members from the band’s original lineup. as of 2010 Willie Sotelo, who joined the group in 2006 as pianist, has become the band’s de facto musical director on tours, with Ithier conducting the group and playing occasionally in select live performances. They are still actively performing after 49 years together.
