NG la Banda was an all-star group of sorts, drawing members from the most important of pre-timba bands. Players and vocalists came from such influential artists as Pachito Alonso, Orquesta Revé, Irakere, and los Van Van, yet not taking too many members from any one place to be considered an off-shoot group. Similarly, their blend of rumba, son, rock, jazz, songo, and funk was an even enough split to be called something entirely new. The material on NG la Banda's QBAdisc release En la Calle comes from their early period, from about 1988 to 1992, a time known as "the birth of timba.

NG La Banda are the creators of timba (a term coined by Cortés), the most important popular dance and music genre of the past two decades. The main precursors of timba are three bands: Los Van Van, Irakere (both in the 1970s) and NG La Banda (1988), though many other bands (. Son 14, Orquesta Original de Manzanillo, Ritmo Oriental, Orquesta Revé) were influential in setting new standards. One of the more popular Irakere dance tunes is "Rucu rucu a Santa Clara" (1985), written by José Luis Cortés "El Tosco," who would later found NG La Banda, and launch the timba movement.
