As a tireless educator and cultural ambassador of Colombia, Vives is an avid supporter of Colombian poet Rafael Pombo’s legacy, which he paid tribute to by producing a series of albums titled Pombo Musical, which were made to keep children connected to national values. In 2015, he founded Tras La Perla to promote sustainable development in the city of Santa Marta and its region influenced by the Sierra Nevada and Ciénaga Grande.
In 2016, he also created the Río Grande Music School with the purpose of offering new artistic experiences based on dialogue influenced by Colombian music, new local music proposals and music from around the world.
