VIDEO: FONSECA and SILVESTRE DANGOND Celebrate The Best Of Colombia On Their Single And Video “CARTAGENA”
MIAMI (January 31, 2020) – Two of Colombia’s most interesting and critically acclaimed musical ambassadors – Fonseca and Silvestre Dangond – are teaming up for the first time to pay tribute to their country’s iconic city of “Cartagena.” The single is available now from all digital-music outlets, while the music video can be enjoyed on Fonseca’s YouTube channel.
Written by Fonseca and Silvestre Dangond along with Mauricio Rengifo, Andrés Torres and Yoel Henríquez, “Cartagena” reminds us to look away from our screens and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us, and to treasure the company of our loved ones. Over a breezy tropical beat and joyful Colombian accordion, the two renowned singers lend their instantly recognizable voices to pay tribute to the warmth of this special place: “vámonos pa’ Cartagena, vivir la vida buena, bailamos juntos en la playa. Llegando a Tierra Bomba, pedimos par de copas, vamo a pasarnos de la raya” (Let’s go to Cartagena, live the good life, dance together on the beach. When we get to Tierra Bomba, we’ll order a couple of drinks and get wild.)
“Cartagena” follows in the footsteps of Fonseca’s previous single “Como Enamoraban Antes” (They Way They Used To Make You Fall In Love), which has over 11 million views on YouTube. The six-time Latin GRAMMY® winner is known for his brilliant fusions of tropical, pop, rock and other genres. His previous album Agustín (2018) produced five hit singles, with the song “Simples Corazones” (Simple Hearts) serving as the title of his 2019 international tour.
