Joe Arroyo

The dance-inspiring sounds of Colombia-born vocalist Joe Arroyo (born: Alvaro Jose Arroyo Gonzalez) sampled a diverse array of Caribbean music styles, including salsa, compas, merengue, reggae, and soca. A former member of leading salsa band Fruko y Sus Tesos, Arroyo continued to blend musical influences with his own group, La Verdad (The Truth), beginning in 1981.

Arroyo began his musical career at the young age of eight when he sang in a strip joint in his hometown of Cartagena. His first break came after he signed with the Discos Fuentes label in 1971, and was overheard by bass player, singer, composer, and producer Ernesto Estrada, better known as Fruko, who recruited him for his band. Arroyo continued to work with Fruko for the next decade. Although he nearly died from a drug overdose in the early '80s, Arroyo recovered and began to attract attention with his own group, La Verdad. He died on July 26, 2011 in a hospital in Barranquilla, Colombia. An announcement that he was a 2011 recipient of the Latin Recording Academy's Lifetime Achievement Award was made on that same day. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

Excelente swing, cadencia, sandunga de este fenomenal e inspirado Cantante.

This freaked me out! This isn't fake. Apparently if you copy and paste this on 10 comments you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either get kissed or asked out. If you break the chain you will see a dead girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry.

La mejor musica bailable, que vivan los carnavales, jejejejeh
the only thing that was left out on his bio, was that the city that change his life and made him was Barranquilla , which is the crib of the Parranda in Colombia
This song was recorded by Joe, Los niches and many other groups, including internationa l groups purchased Arroyo's music. There will never be another like El Joe Arroyo, it was a real loss for Colombian music.
Viva Colombiaaaaa !

José.pena soy boricua igual q tu y me encanta Colombia su música y su comida y nunca e ido al país tienen tremendos cantantes como joe niche adolescentes y otros pero Company tampoco te exageres q viva la salsa la salsa es del mundo
La Mejor Salsa es la De Colombia y la De Venezuela es simplemente mas bailable aunque nosotros los Boricuas digamos que la de nosotros es Mejor. Nada mas lejos de verdad
I just want to Dance right now!!!!:)
Como Richie Ray y Bobby Cruz ,no hay mas na.
Boricua de pura sepa. .el mundo inventa y nosotros los Boricuas las mejoramos
Puerto Rico es la Escuela de la Salsa, aunque muchos no lo acepten. La mayoria de los musicos y cantantes Salsaeros de la Ciudad de Ponce, fueron los que nos dejaron el legado de la Salsa. Tambien se le da credito a nuestros hermanos de Sur America Colombia, Venezuela y muchos más. iQUE VIVA LA SALSA! DJ SalsiRomanti c o Angelo.
