The event, titled “J. Balvin Sinfonico,” is sponsored by newspaper El Tiempo and will take place in the Colombian capital’s Plaza Bolivar, with 40 musicians present.
J. Balvin describes the event as “a concert that searches for tolerance between the musical genres. Symphonic music can also accompany and harmonize these urban rhythms that have so much power for young people.”
The concert will be recorded on Blu-ray DVD and edited by producer Brad Furman, who has worked with a number of reggaeton artists and rappers, including 50 Cent.
In the meantime, the Antioquian reggaeton artist, whose most recent recognition came from a publicized video of him getting a butt injection, gave a private viewing of his newest music video, “Seguire subiendo,” on June 21, in the El Tiempo offices, and presented a sample of his newest musical project.
