Carlos Vives … Después De Todo "VIVES" – Sat. Sept. 17

Saturday, September 17, 2022

Carlos Vives is a singer and songwriter born in Santa Marta, on the caribbean side of Colombia, in the early 60’s. His music is clearly influenced by rock but many of his songs also have a real Vallenato flavor. Vallenato is a popular Colombian music where the accordion plays an important role. Carlos Vives is not only a Grammy Award-winning musician but is also a famous actor and personality in Colombia. His song La tierra del olvido was a huge hit in Colombia and in all Latin America during the 90s. First dibs for this event go to 3rd and 4th year students (on the thought that, having studied a bit about Colombia, they may be keen to listen to some great Colombian pop music). This event is at The Prudential Center in Newark. Transportation will be via carpool and/or public transportation (Maisie will help coordinate carpooling).
