Today’s special about Colombia would not be the same without this
rare album. Pacho Galán was one of the biggest composers of Porro,
Fandango and the inventor of ‘Merecumbé’. Colombian music would
also not have been the same without Pacho Galán.
‘Ay Cosita Linda’ was maybe his biggest hit and the birth of Merecumbé.
He himself was born on october the 4th in Soledad, Atlántico,and
wanted to be a musician since he was a child. Went to conservatoire
and was a professional musician at the age of 15.
The titlesong of this LP was also a great succes in those days.
