Miami, May 27 (EFE). – Colombian singer Carlos Vives spoke with Mexican journalist Jorge Ramos about his career, his family, his music and the difficulties he went through to become one of the greatest advocates of Cumbia and Vallenato, a conversation that can be seen next Sunday on the program “Something Personal with Jorge Ramos”.
The TelevisaUnivision group revealed, for the first time, the difficulties he faced on his way to success and the important role played by his wife Claudia Elena, who also participated in the interview, the TelevisaUnivision group announced in a statement on Friday.
“I did everything, and if you had to dress up for the kids on Sundays in our family restaurant …” admits the singer-songwriter, businessman and actor, who was distinguished by his blending of Colombian folklore with pop and rock.
Vivis, who has won multiple Grammy Awards, asserts at one point in the interview that “Valenato has been a historical despised,” according to the trailer for the conversation, which will be broadcast in its entirety Sunday on the VX streaming service.
On another point, Ramos, whose show “In-Depth Interviews” with famous artists airs Sunday at 10 p.m. on ViX’s Noticias Univision 24/7, told Vives:
“When we think of you, we think of Colombia and joy and music,” to which the author of Steal You Kiss replied, “I know, it’s my heritage.”
In “An episode full of surprises,” the idol of Vallenato and Cumbia also expressed his love for his country and talks about the important role his wife played in his career.
“There are things that need to be addressed in the family,” says the Colombian singer, to whom his host puts on a hat typical of his country so as not to “forget” his land.
According to the statement, Noticias Univision is available 24/7 on demand in the United States and in most Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America, with the exception of Mexico.
Vives is the artist who has brought vallenato, one of the most traditional musical genres in the Colombian Caribbean, to the world’s most diverse stages and stations, bringing audiences culturally apart from Latin dance to the sound of accordion notes. EFE
