SILVESTRE DANGOND RECEIVES IMPORTANT
MUSICAL RECOGNITION DURING THE VIRTUAL CEREMONY OF THE ASCAP LATIN MUSIC AWARDS
The singer-songwriter received the ASCAP Latin Music Award for his song
“VIVIR BAILANDO” alongside Maluma
MIAMI, FL – July 7th, 2020- There’s no better gift than receiving compliments and applauses for these great songs. Today Silvestre Dangond enjoys once again an important recognition for his music in the annual edition of the ASCAP Latin Music Awards, that was celebrated virtually today.
“I enjoyed creating this song because I never thought that Maluma would collaborate with me. When we wrote this song I felt as if Colombia was inside of my heart, I felt rhythms, I felt folklore and combining it with urban music created a very interesting mix; this is why I ended up doing two versions of the song. I thank Maluma, Andres Castro, Sony Latin, Edgar and all the team that supports me every time that we write and create beautiful songs, like this one. ASCAP Awards once again thank you for taking into consideration the talent; I’ll always be thankful” – added Silvestre Dangond.
The Colombian singer was awarded the ASCAP Latin Music Award for composition of the song Vivir Bailando alongside Maluma, a catchy song that blends all the traditional rhythm of vallenato and a touch of urban.
Both artists are at the peak of their powers, delighting the world with their unique and danceable styles. “Vivir Bailando” is co-written by Andrés Castro, Edgar Barrera, Daniel Buitrago and Sharo Torres along with Silvestre and Maluma. Showing off each singer’s respective gift – tropical and urban – this unique track blends their voices and their artistry into a memorable collaboration.
Starting today at 10:30 AM ET and concluding July 9, exclusive photos and videos from Latin music’s top stars, songwriters, producers and publishers will be revealed throughout the day via Instagram, Twitter and Facebook on @ASCAPLatino and @ASCAP with the hashtags #ElPremioASCAP and #ASCAPAwards.
