Peter Manjarrés and Sergio Luis Rodriguez: Pan Am 1 Artists of the Month

 

 

Although they have been part of the Vallenato scene for well over a decade and Peter Manjarrés has already won two Grammy awards, the duo consisting of Peter and Sergio Luis Rodriguez are not well-known outside the genre that blends Caribbean sounds with traditional Colombian music.

Hopefully, that is about to change as their visibility on the internet has resulted in millions of views of their songs. More importantly, there is an understanding from Tamaulipas to Guayaquil that Vallenato is danceable and very compatible with music being produced regionally.

So here is to this month’s Pan Am One Artist of the Month, Peter Manjarrés and Sergio Luis Rodriguez, two of the best reasons that this will be the year that Vallenato crosses over throughout the Americas.
