Perhaps one of the most popular groupings within the cumbia-related genre of vallenato, Binomio de Oro de America was formed by Israel Romero and Rafael Orozco in 1976. Pursuing in the footsteps of Jorge Oñate, Colacho Mendoza, among others within the “natural vallenato” motion, Romero and Orozco shaped the group to try out traditional music, but ultimately worked in various other Latin tastes including cumbia. Intimate, sentimental, and effective songs plus a refined live present including matching clothes and choreography hook them up to the street to worldwide stardom. Travels of Venezuela, the Caribbean, and Panama pass on the term, and in 1981 Colombian flags had been hung throughout Madison Square Backyard because the group produced its NEW YORK debut. The group’s upcoming became uncertain in 1988 when Romero announced he previously cancer. He’d miss some 1989 displays, but he grew more powerful and became more vigorous within the group as period continued. He became the only real leader from the music group in 1993 when Orozco was wiped out by an structured crime family he previously get involved with. He was changed by vocalist Jean Carlos Centeno, who remained with the group until he retired in 2005. Small vocalist Alejandro Palacio changed him and made an appearance on the 2006 launch Grafiti de Amor, which received a Latin Grammy nomination within the category of Greatest Cumbia/Vallenato Album.
