Carlos Vives Live in Toronto | Concert Review

Concert Review

The day arrived and left way too fast. July 16, 2017 will forever be a day that I will hold dear to my heart as I saw Carlos Vives live in concert, a performer I have been a huge fan of since I was a little girl. In last week’s post, I wrote about why he is of importance to me, and how his music shaped my Latinx identity as an immigrant living in Canada.

90’s Songs Latinos Will Never Forget

Musica Latina de los 90 - Mana, Fey, Garibaldi - 90's songs

When I hear these 90’s songs, they bring me back. They bring me right back to the little girl that loved to sing and dance in the living room of my home back in Peru, or the sassy girl that immigrated to Canada and tried so hard to hang on to any aspect of her Latinidad that she could. When I though about writing this post and began compiling the songs, it was SO hard to pick which ones to include. I spent quite a bit of time reminiscing and singing along; as well as laughing at all the cheesiness of all these videos!
