Panamanian singer Rubén Blades and Puerto Rican group Calle 13 will join other artists in a concert to celebrate the end of the year on December 30, 2010, in the Cartagena (Colombia) Baseball Stadium. The concert, Concierto Histórico 2010, will entertain audiences with several musical genres, including salsa, urban music, and vallenato.
Calle 13, who just released their latest album Entren los que quieran [Those Who Want to May Enter], has not performed in Colombia since 2008. On the other hand, Blades, performer of what has been called intellectual salsa and winner of the Latin Grammy for best singer/songwriter album of the year, will revive classics such as “El Cantante”, “Pedro Navaja,” and “Plástico.”
There will also be performances by the Dominican group called Familia André and Colombia’s Guajiro Pipe Peláez and accordion player Manuel Julián, who have just returned to their country after a long tour in Venezuela, where as well as in their home country, they are considered stars of the vallenato genre.
