Eight members of the legendary salsa orchestra El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico were infected with covid-19, absent at the Feria de Cali, Colombia, which starts this Saturday and ends on December 30.
“Merry Christmas. We want to thank all those who have wished us health and those who direct their prayers towards us. We are already experiencing this COVID that affected 8 of our musicians and did not allow us to reach the Cali fair,” the group published on his Instagram account.
“We send a big hug to all our Colombian brothers and soon we will be again bringing our music to them,” the orchestra continued on said social account.
Therefore, they announced that next January they will be presented in the Colombian cities of Manizales, Santa Marta, and Cartagena “if the Almighty allows it.”
“See you there!!!!!!” said the group, which is expected to appear on December 31 at the end of the year celebration organized by the Government of Puerto Rico in the San Juan Convention District.
El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico, nominated for a Grammy this year for her album “En Cuarentena”, recently presented her new production, “De truly con El Combo”, her first Christmas album in more than 35 years.
The new album, released under the Rimas label, contains ten songs with humorous, social, and partying themes typical of the Christmas season in Puerto Rico.
It is the first Christmas album since “La Fiesta de Pilato” (1985) and the third in the history of the orchestra, which soon turns 60 years of career.
