CARLOS VIVES PRESENTS HIS BOOK “CUMBIANA: RELATOS DE UN MUNDO PERDIDO” AT THE MIAMI BOOK FAIR
Through a conversation with Luz Maria Doria, Vives expands on the world of “Música y Literatura”
|The Colombian singer-songwriter, Carlos Vives presents his book “Cumbiana: relatos de un mundo perdido” in conversation with Luz Maria Doria during the 37th edition of the Miami Book Fair, presented by Miami-Dade College. This year, the book fair will offer free virtual encounters with great writers to highlight the influence of Hispanic culture in South Florida. Through his book, Vives takes us to discover the origin of cumbia through a magical journey that weaves together the artist’s memory and is the portal to the reconstruction of an amazing amphibian nation that united its destiny in America with European culture and with the African culture to leave a musical legacy that has marked history. In addition to presenting impactful stories, there will be music and a question and answer space with the audience.|
With more than 20 million albums sold worldwide, Carlos Vives represents Colombia’s most emblematic artist of all time. As an ambassador of Colombian and Latin American culture and sounds, he was the first Colombian to ever win a Grammy award, and to date has taken two Grammy® and eleven Latin Grammy®. As he continued his philanthropic work in support of Tras La Perla, he became the first artist to break attendance records at Colombia’s Movistar arena for selling out four. In May 2020, he released his fourteenth studio album, Cumbiana, which included Ruben Blades, Ziggy Marley, Alejandro Sanz, Jessie Reyez, among others. The first single “No Te Vayas” made it to the Top 10 on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart. Vives received six nominations for the Latin GRAMMY® Awards and the album became a five-time nominated album, including the nomination for “Album of the Year.” Recently, Vives received the Hall of Fame award at the 2020 Billboard Latin Music Awards for his artistic excellence and incredible influence. In October, he shared an intimate performance on the internationally recognized NPR Tiny Desk Home Concert video series and released his documentary, El Mundo Perdido de Cumbiana, on Amazon Prime Video, where he has allowed his audience to discover the origin of cumbia.
