Finally! The Grupo Niche is back with their latest production "Tocando El Cielo Con Las Manos". The original bandleader Jairo Varela unfortunately passed away recently, but these 13 tracks, are the most beautiful hommage to the maestro. Grupo Niche is a salsa institution and an inevitable part of any salsero repertoire:
After 10 years, 5 time Grammy award winner Olga Tañón returns in 2013 with her long awaited new studio album on her own label titled "Una Mujer". Guest artists are for example Elvis Crespo and Johnny Ventura.
Latin Grammy winner Tito el Bambino presents "Invicto" which features 16 tracks that fuse elements of pop, tropical, bachata and urban rhythms.
Who doesn't know him? Marc Anthony, a founding father of salsa, is known by most salseros, of course, and he has gained international celebrity through his marriage with Jennifer López. He has also won the Latin Grammy five times, and this album produced by Anthony and the renowned producer Sergio George marks his first project of original music in the tropical genre in nearly a decade.
Finally, a new star in bachata heaven: Leslie Grace. She was born in the Bronx as a daughter of dominican parents and grew up in Florida. Her first hit in the Latin Billboard Charts was "Will U Still Love Me Tomorrow". Another charming cover version of a 60s hit is "Be my baby", where she also mixes English und Spanish.
