Greetings friends, followers of Piano Salsa! Today we present a new video tutorial, the song: Irimo, made popular by El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico.
“Irimo” was written by composer Rafael Ithier and released in 1971 as part of the album “En Acción.” “Irimo” is an iconic salsa song and has been performed by many artists and orchestras over the years.
The song is known for its catchy rhythm and lyrics that celebrate the music and invite you to dance. The song is already a staple of Latin culture and has become a salsa classic. Irimo is one of the most recognisable songs of El Gran Combo, an orchestra that has had a long and successful career, and has contributed significantly to the development and popularisation of salsa around the world.
