Rock in Puerto Rico has been a product of direct and indirect influence from both American rock music and Latin rock music, and its fusion with other genres. Throughout history, the genre has suffered ups and downs having a significant peak in the 1990s. Here's a breakdown of how rock evolved in the island through the decades. The 1950s mark the introduction of the Rock and Roll genre on the island.
Back in the 1950s, it seemed as if the rural music of Puerto Rico might die out, replaced by international pop - the fate of so much folk music globally. However, during the 1960s, the government actively promoted folk and craft traditions, which saved the music. In the mountains, the music has remained largely unchanged, with new generations playing it.

From San Juan, Puerto Rico, El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico are the most successful Salsa group of all time. Since forming in 1962, the band have released over 60 studio albums and earned the honorary title of La Universidad de la Salsa (The University of Salsa). To the average music fan it can be slightly surreal to learn about bands like El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico. The album was an instant hit, being certified Gold and making a name for themselves in New York, Panama and the groups native Puerto Rico. The rest of the sixties were just as good to the band; however, this lead to overexposure and in 1970, their contract with Gema wasn’t renewed. The band may have had a revolving door policy to membership from day one but they’ve kept the Salsa flame alive through sheer passion and talent.
