Mega Latin Christmas with El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico is the biggest Central Florida Latin Christmas celebration in 2020. El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico, commonly known as El Gran Combo, is a Puerto Rican salsa orchestra based in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and one of the most famous bands in Latin America. The group received the moniker La Universidad de la Salsa (The University of Salsa) in Colombia due to the sheer number of famous salsa musicians and singers who developed their careers with or played with the band.
El Gran Combo was founded in May 1962, by Rafael Ithier. Ithier is still nominally its musical director, and is the only remaining members from the band’s original lineup. As of 2010, Willie Sotelo, who joined the group in 2006 as pianist, has become the band’s de facto musical director on tours, with Ithier conducting the group and playing occasionally in select live performances. They are still actively performing after 50 years together.
