BiographyFruko is often called the godfather of Colombian Salsa, but his importance is not limited to one musical style. He started playing timbales at age 12 for his country's principal record label, Discos Fuentes; later, as a bassist, he became the label's top producer and arranger. In addition to countless recordings with his group Los Tesos, he has also worked with the Latin Brothers and the Cumbia supergroup Sonora Dinamita. Leading the way, he took classic Cuban Son and other Caribbean rhythms and infused them with the energy of New York Salsa, thus creating a vibrant new spin on the Salsa style.
