Hola mis amigos.Â Â¡Es viernes!
Welcome to today’s Friday CanciÃ³n.Â Today’s song isÂ La BicicletaÂ by Carlos Vives and Shakira
You met Carlos in the last Friday CanciÃ³n and we talked about the vallenato echoes to his music.Â In today’s Friday CanciÃ³n Carlos is joined by fellow Colombian singer, Shakira!Â Internationally, she may be a little more widely known than Vives, but together they make a great team.Â La Bicicleta is Shakira’s first collaboration with a fellow Colombian artist.Â To celebrate their love for their homeland, La Bicicleta includes various traditional elements such as vallenato and indigenous Colombian wind instruments and accordions.Â There are also pop and cumbia inclusions.
Enjoy the Colombian collaboration in La Bicicleta…

Both Shakira and Carlos Vives come from Colombia’s Caribbean coast.Â Shakira from the town of Baranquilla and Vives from the town of Santa Marta. The video is meant to showcase their home towns and to show off some more of Colombia’s culture, as the two singers take a ride along the coast.Â It even includes shots from Shakira’s college.Â The videoÂ was directed by Spanish director and photographer Jaume de Laiguana.
Here are some images from Santa Marta and Baranquilla.
Have a lovely Friday!
