Carlos Vives,

A pioneer of Colombian popular music and one of the most important figures in Latin music, makes his long awaited UK debut with a show at O2 Academy Brixton on Thursday 31 March 2016.

With more than thirty million records sold, his performance career dates back to the 1980s when his reinvention of traditional cumbia and vallenato musicalstyles found a huge and popular audience. Vives became the first Colombian artist to win a Grammy and has followed up with a further Grammy and nine Latin Grammys.
