New York, NY (Top40 Charts) On the heels of six Latin GRAMMY nominations including Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Long Form video, GRAMMY-winning musician, songwriter, actor, and philanthropist Carlos Vives has kicked off Hispanic Heritage month with a plethora of events, ranging from his upcoming NPR Tiny Desk performance on October 12th, a virtual Q&A with Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel (October 20-23), and a performance at this year's Billboard Latin Music Awardson October 21st where he will receive the Hall Of Fame Award. Vives has solidified his place as one of Latin music's biggest names by magnifying his country's cultural heritage through his music and opening doors for the future generation of aspiring Colombian artists.

During Billboard's Latin Music Conference, Vives and Gustavo Dudamel will be participating in a virtual Q&A panel titled "From Local Inspiration to International Stage," where the two will discuss the power of music, their approach to music education, and the arts as a global agent of change for a better world. More information here. On October 21st, he will be performing a five-song medley that will accompany his awarding of The Hall of Fame Award at this year's Billboard Latin Music Awards.

2020 has been another milestone year for Vives as he released his album 'Cumbiana' which showcased ten distinct songs ranging from salsa to reggaeton fusions that explore the origins of cumbia including collaborations with Rubén Blades, Jessie Reyez, and Ziggy Marley. He released his documentary "El Mundo Perdido de Cumbiana," which premiered on The Grammy Museum's Digital Channel on August 21st. Both of these projects shed a light on the indigenous roots of Colombian music and spotlights the history of cumbia and vallenato music.
