Carlos Vives Biography
One of Colombia’s biggest musical exports, Carlos Vives achieved Grammy-winning success with a contemporary take on the traditional Latin folk genre known as vallenato. Born in Santa Marta in 1961, Vives moved to Bogota with his family aged twelve where he immersed himself in the city’s rock scene. However, it was as an actor where he first found fame thanks to roles on telenovelas such as Pequenos Gigantes and Tuyo es Mi Corazon and romantic TV drama Gallito Ramirez. In the late 80s he became a tabloid favorite thanks to his brief marriage to actress Margarita Rosa de Francisco and released his first album, Por Fuera y Por Dentro, in 1987. But like his similarly ballad-heavy follow-ups, No Podras Escapar de Mi and Al Centro de la Ciudad, they failed to match the commercial appeal of his acting career. However, Vives would finally enjoy a major musical breakthrough in 1991 when he was cast as Rafael Escalona in a small screen biopic of the vallenato composer. The show was a major success in his homeland and spawned two best-selling soundtracks which introduced Vives’ vocal talents to a much wider audience. Much to the dismay of the genre’s purists, Vives then took the vallenato sound into more mainstream territory, mixing it with pop and rock influences for a number of albums recorded with backing band La Provincia including La Tierra del Olvido, Tengo Fe and El Amor de Mi Tierra. In 2002, Vives picked up his first Grammy Award when Dejame Entrar won Best Traditional Tropical Latin Album, before 2004 follow-up El Rock de Mi Pueblo gave him a debut entry on the Billboard 200. In 2009, Vives recorded a sequel to his 1994 hit covers album, Clasicos de la Provincia, paying tribute to the likes of Luis Enrique Martinez, Juancho Polo Valencia and Sergio Moya Molina. Vives then returned to television in 2012 when he took on a coaching role on the Colombia version of hit talent show The Voice, while a year later he invited the likes of Michel Telo to appear on his 13th studio effort, Corazon Profundo. In 2015, Vives added to his tally of Grammys when Mas Corazon Profundo was named Best Tropical Latin Album.
