A goodbye… memories… hopes and dreams that words can’t describe, these are images that touch the heart and soul and play a central role in the music video for “La foto de los dos”.

 The story tells that when Simón Bolívar navigated, during his last journey, through the Magdalena River and arrived to Mompox, his followers told him: “General, we are arriving to Mompox”. Bolívar answered: “Mompox doesn’t exist, sometimes we dream about it, but it doesn’t exist”. This mysterious phrase best describes the town located in Bolívar, Colombia which takes life in the Carlos Vives’ new music video that premieres tomorrow worldwide.

 

The magnificent geography, landmarks and culture of the county are all vibrantly showcased in the video’s production. This is the second music video with the support of FONTUR (Colombia’s National Tourism Fund) and Marca País Colombia, aiming at incentivizing tourism to these Colombian counties by way of the artist. The first video backed by the fund: “Bailar Contigo”, was filmed in the county of Ciénaga. 

 

 “La foto de los dos”, is the fourth official single from the album “Corazón Profundo” and this week became the 4th song from the album to reach #1 on Colombia’s national radio charts. The video for the hit was co-produced by Colombian director Felipe Montoya and Carlos Vives himself, as well as produced by Solanáceas Films. The video stars Jairo Camargo and Viña Machado in the lead-roles. “Every image of the video is a visual to the nostalgic tempo of the ballad. The band is an expression of Rock de mi Pueblo, with a mood reminiscent of the Zydeco in the Mississippi river along with the legendary cumbia music of the Magdalena river... “Mono” Barrionuevo’s magical accordion along with the black guitar’s rhythm, give life to this fantastic band that provides the soundtrack to the images of Mompox and our culture. The geography of the town makes us dream and it’s a great place to teach our children about their Colombian culture and for them to learn their history and feel proud to be Colombian”, commented Vives.

 

The video will premiere tomorrow, October 25 on Carlos Vives’ official VEVO channel. The video will also be available for download on iTunes.

This past weekend, the artist gave a stellar performance in front of more than 9 thousand people at the Poliedro in Caracas, as part of his international “Corazón Profundo Tour”. During his visit, Carlos was surprised with a Platinum album for his sales of “Corazón Profundo” in the country. José Ignacio Hernández, General Manager and Luis Capecchi, Marketing Manager from Sony Music Venezuela presented the plaque to Vives during a taping of the popular Sábado Sensacional program broadcast on the Venevision network.

 The “Corazón Profundo Tour” continues this weekend in Europe with three concerts in Spain: October 26 in the city of Malaga, October 27 in Madrid and October 30 in Barcelona. In November, Carlos Vives returns to the United States for the 14th annual Latin Grammy Awards in Las Vegas, NV where the Colombian icon is this year’s most nominated artist with 5 nods in the award ceremony’s most important categories.
