In 1957 began in Medellín (Colombia) the musical group The Teen Agers, which was later renamed 'Los 8 de Colombia'. By the date of release of this album they had published nearly forty records. The group spread his fame to other American countries and even acted in several U.S. cities, where they finished fixing residence in Miami in 1983 for three years before his final return to Colombia. Then the group expanded the number of members coming to collect two trumpets, two saxophones, three percussionists, three vocalists, bass and piano under the direction of Juan José Vélez and Luis Eduardo Peñuela.
After hitting a creative peak in the early '90s, Los Lobos settled into a decade-long groove that was perhaps a little too comfortable. The band's twelfth studio CD, The Ride, tries to shake things up a bit, and mostly succeeds by pairing the group with a string of collaborators similar to Carlos Santana's Supernatural. Only instead of the young hit-makers that propelled Santana's comeback, The Ride matches Los Lobos with early influences (Bobby Womack, Little Willie G) and long-time friends (Dave Alvin, Elvis Costello)..
In 1971, as an extension of those beautiful holidays in a big house in Seville Street Imperial, which Manuel Bernal Prieto, its owner, baptized with the name "La Trocha" born this group bearing the same name that mythical tablao, always remembered. Manolo Bernal and even early eighties that is when the group broke up, what form Leonardo Lopez Roldan Antonio Ramirez Perez, Antonio Beltran Pavon "Valencina" and Francisco Terrero Ramos (guitar), incorporated after Francisco Sanchez de la Rosa. The act every day of the year in the same place, taking high-flying moves when the tablao with all the luxury Round Capuchins, made it possible that "La Trocha" reached a high levels of professionalism and experience, which could be felt not only in daily activities but the annual discography, always surprising us with songs like "It was your love", "My Thoughts" or "pure Canela" among other compositions of excellent workmanship.
