El Binomio de Oro was officially created by vallenato singer Rafael Orozco and accordionist Israel Romero on June 16, 1976. Both were students attending University classes in the city of Barranquilla, Colombia. Romero had just recorded a Long Play with singer Emilio Oviedo, with strong influences from singer Jorge Oñate, the Lopez brothers, accordionist Colacho Mendoza and the Los Hermanos Zuleta who were the mainstream vallenato groups at the moment. Romero had been successful with the hit songs "Amanecemos Parrandeando" and "Digan lo que digan". Orozco had just recorded the songs "Cariñito de mi vida" by Diomedes Diaz, "Presentimiento" and "Adelante". The group recorded the long play "Binomio de Oro (album)" in 1977.

After the death of Orozco, Romero took the group under his management. He was able to maintain the group's popularity by hiring young talents and maintaining always a new style. Romero first hired Gabriel "El Gaby" García who was physically very similar to Orozco and impersonated him, the chorus was JEAN CARLOS CENTENO and the other was JORGE CELEDÓN, as well as his accordionist nephew JF "El Morre" Romero. Their next album featured a song by Rafael Orozco titled "Solo para ti" which became an all time hit.

In 1996 Jean Carlos Centeno and Jorgito Celedon became lead singers of the Binomio de Oro along with Romero as accordionist and his nephew after Garcia's departure. In 1999 singer Jorgito Celedon pursued a solo career and was replaced by Junior Santiago. Later Junior Santiago and "Morre" Romero separated from the group to form their own vallenato group.

Enjoy the best of el Binomio de Oro here and warm up for a MEGA concert this April !!!
