Iconic Latin artist Carlos Vives releases new album Cumbiana

With decades being a singer, songwriter, actor, activist and overall Colombian icon, Carlos Vives continues to expand his already global reach with his latest album Cumbiana. In Cumbiana, Carlos Vives’ goal of expressing a love letter of cumbia’s small origins to the masses is embodied with eclectic and innovative collaborations with both established and upcoming artists. With 13 Grammys under his belt – 11 Latin Grammy and 2 Grammys – Vives continues his musical trajectory with this fourteenth album.

One of the strong collaborations of Cumbiana features is a catchy and upbeat bilingual song “Hechicera” with R&B songstress Jessie Reyez that opens the album. With this collaboration, Vives starts off the album showing up that he is not a name from the past but that he continuously evolving while keeping his folkloric soul alive. With lyrics “Brindemos por un mundo mejor / Que la maldad no tenga un lugar / Y que la gente viva de amor” roughly translating to “Cheers to a better world / Let there be no place for evil / And may the people live in love” Vives brings the distinguished light and joy that he is known for to life.

With a little essence of each prolific artist, Vives managed to create a melting pot of light and cultures all through the spectrum in Cumbiana.
