Sebastian Yatra, 23, and Manuel Turizo, 18, are two of Colombia’s youngest urban artists in the game. But don’t let their ages fool you; with songs such as “Traicionera” (Yatra) and “Esperandote” (Turizo) making the rounds, they’re also two of Colombia’s hottest acts right now.
With the mission of continuing to take over the world with their music, Yatra and Turizo have kicked off a joint tour, where they will visit fans in the U.S. during the months of October and November, including California, Texas, and New York.
Billboard was front row and center during their pit stop on Saturday, Oct. 6 at the James L. Knight Center in Miami, Fla. Here are five reasons you can’t miss these boys in action.
5. It’s a family-friendly show
One of the things we noticed at the concert was the variety of people in the audience. You had everyone from children to millennials to abuelitos enjoying the live show.
4. Colombia in the house
Yes, there were people of all ages and different nationalities, but there’s nothing more beautiful than seeing Colombians supporting their own artists. The Yatra and MTZ concert gathered tons of proud Colombians in one room, most of them flaunting their yellow soccer jerseys, flags, and/or sombreros Vueltiao.
3. Manuel Turizo and Julian Turizo brought fam goals
Opening act Manuel Turizo took the stage with his older brother, Julian, and gave us major family goals throughout their entire show. While performing songs such as “Una Lady Como Tu,” “Vaina Loca,” and “Culpables,” concertgoers could feel their undeniable bond in the venue.
2. There’s a live band
Who doesn’t love a live band? Expect this during Sebastian Yatra’s show, who was able to bring a cool rock-and-roll twist to his urban songs, such as with the sultry “Sutra.”
1. Sebastian Yatra really pours his heart out
A live band and group of dancers are not the only thing Yatra has to offer. The Colombian singer really brings emotion to each and every one of his songs. You can tell from the jumping up and down, ripping his shirt open and joining his fans on the floor that Yatra is really enjoying his show. (Oh, and you have to see his soulful interpretation of Bad Bunny’s “Amorfoda.”)
