Para los que se olvidaron de sus clásicos (2014)

Wilson y Los Más Elegantes

FIRST ALBUM OUT NOW!

Available at concerts, screenings, and from SPIN

The first album of Wilson y Los Más Elegantes is made for people who want to connect with the Colombian classics. It brings a fine selection of bambucos, cumbias and a vals, featuring Wilson as a singing Colombian anomaly with his irresistible and inimitable accent. The original Spanish lyrics reveal an immediate glorification and a desire for the native land of Colombia.

"El Regreso is the song that I relate to the most," says Wilson; "because it testifies of the intense but also ambivalent sensations that come with returning to your native land."

The entire album was recorded at the Acuarela Studios in the city of Cali, the legendary musical capital of Colombia. The local caleño designer and illustrator CaliDoso created the artwork that evokes the idiosyncratic nature of Wilson y Los Más Elegantes.
