Silvestre Dangond is truly committed to the urban genre..

Colombian singer Silvestre Dangond has taken vallenato all over the world, but in this new stage of his career he ventured to release an album of “urban music” that nevertheless has his characteristic stamp, which is the accordion as the main instrument.

“Intruso”, the name of the new production of Dangond (Urumita, 1980), arose after the artist, as revealed in an interview with EFE, had accumulated several urban songs that he had released in recent years and decided to put them together in a new album.

“I’ve always been releasing one or two urban songs every year. They accumulated one with the other and when I saw it I already had more than six songs made. And I said, well, I’m going to finish making an album and show it to the public, because the urban music that I make has a characteristic stamp due to the main instrument, which is the accordion”, he affirms.

Dangond’s new work has songs published several years ago with reggaeton references such as “Marry me”, with Nicky Jam; “Vallenato Apretao”, with Zion and Lennox, or “Justicia”, with Natti Natasha.

That, however, was not an impediment for him to work on other new songs such as “Sé que está con el”, with Reik and Boza, and “Esa Mujer”, with Ñengo Flow, with whom he had the opportunity to write four-handed.

“The opportunity I had to write with Ñengo was direct, in the studio. The truth is that he is very explosive, very real as he himself says, many things flow to him. I think that rather it is necessary to stop him because he gives more than necessary “, it states.

The new album also includes the song “We are not to blame”, in which he sings with his 14-year-old son Monaco, whom he saw from a very young age as a young man with “a lot of talent, especially to write”.

“With him it was a very nice experience, this was like a little taste for the world of entertainment and the industry because in reality what I want most is for the years to pass and live his life as a child, as a teenager. As he goes gaining experience and starting to grow, let him make the decisions himself, not guided by me,” he says.

He also considers that “he is very intelligent”, although he believes “it is very premature right now to talk about what is going to happen to him” in the artistic field.

All the songs on the album, says Dangond, have to do with his “story of him” and he believes that therein lies what makes his music unique, beyond whether this new is what he used to do in the vallenato.

“I have fun in what I do, otherwise I wouldn’t do it (…) Everything has been done with full conviction and taste, with love for music,” he says.

In this sense, the Colombian artist points out that it is “very difficult to detach from the roots”, since he was born in Urumita, a town in the Caribbean department of La Guajira where he was surrounded by minstrels during his growth and training.

“As the saying goes: ‘you can’t put shoes on the Indian because he leaves.’ manifest, without knowing where it comes from.

However, he is aware that his strongest fan base may not like the album, because he is “Silvestre Dangond, the one they have always seen as a vallenato singer.”

“But it’s also uncomfortable not to do something because it makes me frustrated not to do it,” the singer concludes.
