Unfortunately, the former academic pointed out, it is one of the genres that is taken very little into account, for this reason he has undertaken a personal struggle.
It is said that culture is not essential for life and for survival, however, what do we do to avoid going crazy? We listen to music, we watch TV series, we are trying to see even the streams of the plays, because if not, what would become of us? We would go crazy! We would have to give that value to culture, I think that is very important and it begins with ourselves to try to revalue, to bring, to give work when possible.
As for Maluma, this would be a totally new experience as he has never recorded mariachi, however, Colombia is one of the biggest fans of regional Mexican music.
Colombia is a country that loves ranchera music, it makes us proud that artists from other countries want to join our party ”Carlos Rivera, singer.

It is a very difficult year, the music industry is one of those that has suffered the most, there are no spaces, the theaters are at 30% (of their capacity), obviously we don’t even talk about concerts. It is super sad to see that there is no place where the music can continue to sound, like the Garibaldi musicians, who are having a really bad time ”, he deepens.
Rivera himself confirmed that due to the outbreak he had to cancel his participation in the Latin Grammys after a member of his staff tested positive for the virus, the “current situation is complicated,” he acknowledged.
