Grupo Niche is currently recording their latest album at the “Rolo’s Studio” in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, in the analog format for an authentic salsa sound experience. This new work is under the musical direction of Maestro José Aguirre, who is overseeing every smallest detail in keeping with the style created by the late Maestro Jairo Varela.

GRUPO NICHE was formed in Cali, Colombia in 1980 by songwriter, vocalist, arranger, and producer Jairo Varela, who began his music career at age eight with the group La Timba. Comprised of young musicians from the state of Chocó, Grupo Niche was conceived as new, alternative salsa with a more international style and flavor. Their first album, 1980’s Al Pasito, put Colombia on the map of the world of salsa. As Jairo Varela broke away from existing musical structures, he also took on Afro-centric issues in all their social and ethnic implications, singing to his homeland, Chocó -- its problems, its marginality, and its poverty. The group’s second album release
