About Carlos Vives
It is said that Carlos Vives was destined for the world of music, and has bestowed continued honor and humility upon Colombia.
Many in his homeland would come to know of Vives at a very young age. He composed a song at the age of 16 that would be sung by the school band. Beyond that, it won him first place in the Colombian music festival of Iragua College. Soon enough, Vives was taking jobs composing music for others. Then life took another turn for Vives when he found a love for theater.
Vives enrolled in the National School of Drama in 1981, which paved the way for a successful career as a television actor. Along the way, he was cast in the soap opera "Pharaoh," and later another series called "Your Heart is Mine." He soon became known as 'one of the hottest Latin exports in television,' and his passions turned again to music.
It was Vives' album "Clasicos de La Provincia" that served to be a metamorphosis of styles and arrangements the likes of which many had never heard. Crowds around the world became enamored with the sounds of Carlos Vives. Since that period, Vives has never simply settled on his success. Instead, he has constantly pushed the envelope to produce award-winning music, one hit after another.
Vives holds the record for Latin Grammy nominations, and was the first Columbian artist to win a Grammy. His most recent album, "Corazon Profundo," bowed in 2013, sparking a worldwide tour that swept through Latin America, the U.S. and Europe.
