Grammy-winning Colombian vocalist Carlos Vives will headline the second Hola! London Festival, along with Rubén Blades with Roberto Delgado Salsa Big Band, plus more artists to be announced. The O2 in association with Como No celebrates the river of Latin music that runs through the heart of London.
Carlos Vives is one of the most emblematic artists in Colombia and one of the most important figures in Latin music. With more than 20 million albums sold around the world, he is considered a pioneer of the new Colombian and Latin American sound. Vives’ infectiously joyful music is both soulful and sweetened with pop melodies and harmonies but with a harder drive from rock guitar and bass. He was the first Colombian artist to win a Grammy Award and, to date, has taken home 2 Grammys and 11 Latin Grammys. Some of his best hits include: La gota fría, Déjame entrar, Fruta fresca, Volví a nacer, Bailar contigo and La Bicicleta: a duet with Shakira that debuted at #1 on Billboard charts.
Outside the arena, Comida Fest – Latin American Street Food – will again take up residence presenting traditional food and drinks from midday, and fans will have the opportunity to enjoy free music and activities.
