Aterciopelados is the most emblematic band of Colombian rock, and one of the most influential bands in Latin rock and alternative music. They have an enormous repertoire of classics including Florecita Rockera, Bolero Falaz, Maligno, and El Album, amongst others, while continuously experimenting and creating new music.

Andrea Echeverri and Conector have for 30 years been an integral part of the Latin American alternative music scene, winning of three Latin Grammys for the albums ‘Gozo Poderoso’ in 2001, ‘Oye’ in 2007 and ‘Claroscura’ in 2018; and receiving six nominations for the Grammy Awards. This dynamic duo has written part of Colombian history in choirs and stanzas, with a feminine voice that speaks against violence and is committed to a fairer future and less violent society.

With 11 albums: ‘Con el Corazón en la Mano’ (1993), ‘El Dorado’ (1995), ‘La Pipa De La Paz’ (1996), ‘Caribe Atómico’ (1998), ‘Gozo Poderoso’ (2000), ‘Evolución’ (2002), ‘Oye’ (2006), ‘Rio’ (2008), ‘Reluciente, Rechinante y Aterciopelado’ (2016), ‘Claroscura’ (2018) and ´Tropiplop’ (2021), have transcended in the industry, breaking stereotypes, creating music with female empowerment messages, environmental awareness, melodrama, impossible love and possible peace processes.

In 2021 they presented their most recent album ‘Tropiplop’, a cry in defence of art, women and the planet, with which they received two nominations for the Latin Grammy 2021. They also presented the singles ‘No Se Viola’ (Feat. La Muchacha), ‘Ovarios’ (Feat. Vivir Quintana) and ‘Plañidera’ (Feat. Las Áñez), which were part of the art exhibition ‘Ovarios Calvarios’ by Andrea Echeverri.

During 2022, they toured Europe, Latin America & the United States with the “Tropiplop Tour 2022”; premiered the singles: ‘Siganme Los Buenos’ in collaboration with Bomba Estéreo and ‘Volver a Solreír’ with Ruben Albarrán from Cafe Tacvba. They presented the video clip for the song ‘Meditacielo’ from the album
“Tropiplop” and its chapter “BIOS. VIDAS QUE MARCARON LA TUYA” by National Geographic, where they presented an emotional and revealing history of Aterciopelados.

For 2023, Aterciopelados commemorates the 27th anniversary of their album ‘ElDorado’ (1995) with an explosive tour across Latin America, the USA and Europe, and their first London show in 20 years.
