Grupo Niche is Colombia’s most emblematic salsa orchestra who have conquered the world for more than thirty-five years with their Cali-style salsa. Formed in 1980, Grupo Niche was started in the city of Bogotá by Jairo Varela Martinez, later moving to Cali where Varela composed and produced the song Cali Pachanguero, a song that would bring national recognition to Grupo Niche and was declared the official song of the Cali Fair. Grupo Niche entered a new phase in 1988, with hits such as Nuestro Sueño and Como Podre Disimular. The band brought their dynamic sound to Europe for the first time in 1989, and during the ’90s, Grupo Niche turned to romantic lyrics, leaving behind their traditional songs based on social issues and had numerous hits such as Ana Mil, La Canoa Rancha, Cali Aji, Una Aventura, Cielo de Tambores, Gotas de Lluvia and Cali Pachanguero.
