Singer-songwriter Vicente García, Best New Artist at the Latin Grammys, will be offering a concert in Los Angeles on February 27 as part of his International A La Mar Tour.
The dreadlocked Dominican has gained quite a following thanks to his unexpected fusion of reggae, bachata, blues, jazz, folk, salsa, merengue, and other genres. His music is influenced both by the sounds of the Caribbean and a more urban sensibility he picked up while living in Bogotá, Colombia. Talented and versatile, he has worked on collaborations with Latin artists and bands such as Juan Luis Guerra, Alejandro Sanz, Juanes, Maná, and Camila.
In 2016, García released a hugely successful album, “A la Mar”, featuring “Carmesí” and “Dulcito e Coco,” two of his most popular singles. The following year his A La Mar Tour took off. Tour stops included Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Monterrey, Mexico; Lima, Peru, and Medellín, Colombia. European fans were also treated to shows in Spain and Belgium.
Now, fans in the Los Angeles area will be able to see the award-winning singing sensation live at legendary concert venue Troubadour (9081 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA, 90069), where music greats including Neil Young, Elton John, Neil Diamond. Billy Joel, Leonard Cohen, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Pearl Jam, Korn, Radiohead, Johnny Cash, Queens of the Stone Age, Franz Ferdinand, Coldplay, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ringo Starr, Rod Stewart, The Cure, Depeche Mode, Tom Jones, Nine Inch Nails, and Sam Smith have performed.
