CarlosVives: “Matilde Lina” (1994)

Multiple Grammy and Latin Grammy winner Carlos Vives specializes in the vibrant, uplifting sounds of Columbian vallenato music.

Like Juan Luis Guerra with the bachata and merange music of the Dominican Republic, Vives updates the traditional sounds with driving percussion, lively accordian, electric guitar accents and bold, full-throated vocals.

It’s music with a joyful energy, ideal for adding a splash of color to a playlist, or perking up your drab workday afternoon.

The Clásicos de la Provincia album sold 4 million copies worldwide and well over a million in Colombia alone.
