Karol G Pays Tribute to Latin Artists - Coachella 2022

Saluting the greats, Karol G performed number one hits from some of the most influential artists in Latin music who paved the way for Latinos in mainstream pop music. Her concert included a timeline of visuals that highlighted meaningful hit songs, beginning in 1953 with Richie Valens' "La Bamba," followed by the 1970s hit classic "Oye Como Va" by Santana, and Gloria Estefan and The Miami Sound Machine's 1980s smash hit "La Conga."


Flashing on the LED screens before the audience was the smile of the late Selena Quintanilla, whose 50th birthday was Saturday, April 16th. Karol performed a masterful tribute to Mexico's sweetheart singing, "Como La Flor," which the crowd chanted for more. She then paid her honor to Ricky Martin with "Maria" and had the audience dancing to "La Macarena" by Los Dos Rio.



Shortly after sharing the stage with her fellow Latina performer, Becky G, Karol sang "La Vida Es Un Carnaval" by Cuba's Queen of salsa, Celia Cruz, as well as performed Daddy Yankee's "Gasolina," and paid her final tribute to Shakira's 2006 hit song "Hips Don't Lie," while reminding her fans she was born to dance as well as to sing–a true performer.


Her Coachella performance celebrated Latino culture and paid homage to her home country, Colombia. She closed out her concert wearing her flag colors red, yellow, and blue with pride in her statement two-piece ensemble.
