Jair Ganan y su Orcquesta Batallan will have you become a dancing machine! Jairo Gañan, a composer and singer from Caleño, was born in 1968 and from his childhood and adolescence sang at school, made presentations and participated in neighborhood contests, his taste for salsa was developed in Buenaventura where he lived at Age of 10 years being strongly influenced by Orchestras like the Great Combo, Larry Harlow and admiring vocalists like Frankie Dante, and Ismael Rivera among others.
