15 Songs, 52 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Well over a decade after the release of Clásicos de la Provincia, Carlos Vives again covers traditional vallenato songs, this time doubling down confidently on his now well-honed pop-rock approach to folkloric Colombian sounds. Guitars crunch and the beats pop, but the accordion always takes center stage—and shreds. Vibrant Caribbean hybrids like his renditions of “Las Mujeres” and “La Bogotana”—and his alternative treatment of “Mujer Conforme”—make a case for his style that’s hard to resist.
