As part of a very important week for music, a new Latin Grammy gala was held that, on this occasion, rewarded the work of several Colombian artists, among them the accordionist Egidio Cuadrado, who received special recognition from the Academy in honor of his work in the industry and his legacy. His name was awarded the ‘Board of Directors Award’, which highlights him for his professional excellence.

In this sense, Carlos Vives, the man he has played with for many years, took the opportunity to congratulate him and interview him before the cameras of ‘La red’, a Caracol Televisión program.

From La Vegas, the samario musician asked the first vallenato king to receive a Latin Grammy, what his feelings were when he was honored.

“Thank God for the blessing of this Grammy and I want to share it with my followers and with my Villanueva people. Very happy, really, because as my grandmother used to say: tributes must be done while alive, because after death one neither sees, nor hears, nor understands “, commented Egidio Cuadrado.

In the same way, Carlos Vives took advantage and left an emotional message in which he admitted that he cried when he found out about the nomination.

“Very deserved compadrito and I want to thank you as your key in so much time of concerts and years of affection, so that the Academy recognizes you is a pride for me, and I want you to know that since the announcement we cried with the comadre Claudia” added Carlos Vives, who served as one of the reporters for ‘La red’.

It should be remembered that during the award ceremony in Las Vegas, Egidio Cuadrado, in addition to expressing the deep love he feels for his relatives, thanked Colombia and the Grammys for recognizing the broad and important cultural value that the country gives to the world, from its music. He thanked his accordion, whom he pointed to as his first friend, and one more extension of his body.

“More than deserved this award. Big hug and long life to my friend!”, Vives commented in the publication who, in addition, was sharing in the stories of his Instagram account some of the moments that were lived on the red carpet.

It was in previous days when, Vives himself, through a video, revealed that he had arrived in Las Vegas, in the United States, to accompany his colleague, as he would be awarded with an important recognition.

“I come to accompany my compadre Egidio in the first tribute, the first award that King Vallenato receives from the Latin Recording Academy. A Grammy for my compadre Egidio, so I am very happy to accompany him in this special moment, very deserved for the Vallenato people, especially for our land, Villanueva, who should feel very proud because I believe that this award is also a Grammy for the birthplace of accordions ”, he detailed.

The Academy, in the arguments to grant him this important recognition, reminded the public that Egidio has played the accordion since he was six years old, which made him accumulate enough experience to become one of the most important musicians in Colombia, as well as one of the most respected. In the 90s, the Grammy portal tells us, he got together with Carlos Vives to work in La Provincia, a tropical group that ‘he sought to evoke the spirit of vallenato by fusing it with elements of contemporary pop-rock. ‘
