More Info on Victor Manuelle: _

Salsero Victor Manuelle is one of the up-and-coming talents of the ’90s. He was born in New York City, but raised in Puerto Rico surrounded by the hot sounds of salsa music. Early influences include Ismael Rivera, Cheo Feliciano and Gilberto Santa Rosa. Manuelle had an unusual beginning to his career. It was during 1986 and he was attending a Gilberto Santa Rosa concert when suddenly he lept up on stage and began singing with him. Santa Rosa liked what he heard and got him in touch with Don Perignon who hired Manuelle to sing in his band. Thanks again to Santa Rosa, Manuelle eventually signed to Sony Tropical. His debut was Justo a Tiempo, and he remained a prolific act throughout the remainder of the decade.


More Info on Jorge Celedon:_

Son of Adolfo Celedon, a traditional Mexican music singer, Colombian Jorge Celedon grew up listening to Alejo Duran, who became a major influence. At a very young age, he began singing along with his uncle, Daniel Celedon, and soon made his first record, “El Drama Provinciano.” Singer Jean Carlo Centeno performed with him in Binomio de Oro, a vallenato-oriented outfit. In 1988, the promising artist left that band to pursue a solo career. Accordionist Jimmy Zambrano joined him to make his debut album, titled Romantico Como Yo, featuring the hit single “No Te Olvidaré” composed by Iván Calderón.
