Concierto Paz Sin Fronteras


The recent tensions between Colombia and Venezuela (and Ecuador) gave birth to a remarkable intiative: a concert for peace that will take place right on the border between the rivaling countries. Juanes - always concerned about human rights and peace in Colombia - is the big man behind the project. In only a few days he convinced some important friends in the music business to participate: Shakira (she cancelled), Juan Luis Guerra, Miguel Bose, Ricky Martin, Carlos Vives, Ricardo Montaner, Juan Fernando Velasco and Alejandro Sanz. Especially the last name is quite sensational, as you remember Sanz has some serious beef with Venezuelan president Chavez. Let's see what that gives! The free concert starts at 19:00 CET (2 PM EDT) tonight, and 400,000 people are expected to show up on the banks of Tachira river, all dressed in white. The Latin Americanist lists the possibilites for watching the concerts live on the web, or if you click "Show Videos..." below, you can watch the entire event right here!

A very good intentioned concert will always be welcome and celebrated. Good for them.

I've been following La Onda Tropical for a while now, a couple friends and I are forming CLUB FONOGRAMA, with music reviews of latin albums. If you want to take a look...

thanks!
