Prudential Center presents Carlos Vives

(NEWARK, NJ) -- Two-time GRAMMY and 15-time Latin GRAMMY award winner Carlos Vives is heading out on the North American leg of his “Después De Todo ‘VIVES’” and is set to hit Prudential Center in Newark on September 17 at 8:00pm.

Chosen by Billboard Magazine as one of the best of 2022 so far, Cumbiana II, Vives’ most recent album that includes the single “Teke Teke,” with Black Eyed Peas and Play-N-Skillz which climbed the Top 10 chart in Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Costa Rica. He also has recent collaborations with Carlos Rivera, Los Angeles Azulez, Pedro Capo, Camilo and more.

Vives is one of the most important figures in Latin music today and is the creator of a new sound based on the traditional music of the Caribbean coast and the northern region of Colombia. Vives' work as an artist revolves around the study, knowledge and dissemination of the Colombian identity in its many facets and in its complex diversity. 

In 1993 he formed the band La Provincia as a tribute to musicians from the most remote and rural regions of the Caribbean and as a laboratory for new talents in contemporary music. Vives and La Provincia have traveled around the world, taking the culture and value of Colombian identity to all corners of the world, helping them quickly earn international recognition. His album Vives surpassed 2 billion streams, and was steered by the global hits “La Bicicleta” (Shakira) and “Robarte un beso” (Yatra), which have generated a combined 2.5 billion views on YouTube. His award-winning work "Cumbiana" includes not only an album but also the Latin GRAMMY®-winning documentary "The lost world of Cumbiana", and the book "Cumbiana, stories of a lost world", exposing a true creative universe around the origin and the evolution of cumbia.

In 2015, he founded the initiative “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 creating a dialogue around Colombian music and culture, new local music proposals and world music. As his most beloved slogan indicates, “united in diversity”, Carlos Vives has made his mark across generations through music and the relentless and inspired advocacy for his culture.
