Comedian, storyteller, writer, actor, creative, host, lecturer and much more, Andrés López became the pioneer of stand-up comedy in Colombia in 2004 when he created the show “La Pelota de Letras”, and set the record for the highest-selling DVD in Latin America.  With over 1,500 live performances, “La Pelota de Letras” has been seen by over 2.5 million people all over the world through 6 years of international touring and theatrical residencies.  “La Pelota de Letras” was twice awarded sales milestones, first Diamond DVD sales in 2006 and later Double Diamond DVD sales in 2007.  After unprecedented success with “La Pelota de Letras”, Andrés released his second DVD “Me Pido La Ventana” in 2007, which almost immediately was awarded Diamond DVD sales for exceeding 70,000 sold units, more than 50,000 of which were sold within 2 months of its release.  In 2008, Andrés debuted the show “Me Pido La Ventana con Frutica Picada”, which has been performed over 600 times live and has been enjoyed by 1 million fans and counting.

In addition to having toured the world with his shows, Andrés has creatively collaborated with more than 40 companies and brands.  His book “La Pelota de Letras – El Manuscrito Original” not only turned into a Bestseller at the 2010 Feria del Libro, but outsold every other book at the event.  A master of imitation, Andrés has done all kinds of voiceovers that have been used in radio, television, web content and cartoons.  Andrés is one of the most popular personalities in Colombia, with over 1 million Twitter followers and over 1.8 million Facebook fans.

JOVANOTTI

Throughout the course of an ever-evolving 25-year career consisting of 12 albums and worldwide record sales in excess of 5 million units, socially conscious Italian superstar Jovanotti has notched eight #1 albums and ten #1 singles. Initially influenced by artists like the Beastie Boys, Afrika Bambaataa, Grandmaster Flash and Run DMC, Jovanotti first exploded onto the scene with his debut album “Jovanotti for President”, which established him as the only Italian to break through as a rapper and turned him into the face of the youth, selling over 400,000 copies and slating multiple #1 hits. More recently, his 2008 album “Safari” debuted at #1 and sold over 600,000 copies, and his 2011 album “Ora” also sold over 600,000 copies, making them the best selling titles in Italy those years. Today, Jovanotti continues to crank out #1 hits and is the most-followed Italian on Twitter with over 1.2 million followers, cementing his place as Italy’s most emblematic artist.

Constantly reinventing himself, Jovanotti has incorporated different styles of music into his own and has collaborated with a wide variety of artists, including Amadou & Mariam, Gogol Bordello, Juanes, Ben Harper, Bomba Estereo, Michael Franti, TV on the Radio, Bono, Carlinhos Brown, Jorge Drexler, the Beastie Boys and the late Luciano Pavarotti. A multi-generational icon, Jovanotti has been on the covers of Italian editions of renowned magazines Vanity Fair, GQ, Rolling Stone, and many more. His socially-conscious lyrics and progressive activism have had serious impact; the anthemic 2000 song “Cancella il Debito”, coupled with Bono’s support, played a part in getting then-Prime Minister Massimo D’Alema to reduce debt in developing African countries.

Jovanotti consistently sells out stadiums and arenas in his native Italy, and performs on the world’s biggest stages. As his international imprint continues to grow, his music and high-energy live shows reach new territories and captivate new audiences. In 2012, Jovanotti played some of the United States’ most well-known festivals, including Bonnaroo, Outside Lands and Austin City Limits. Soon, he will be performing for fans across Latin America, where hits like “Serenata Rap” resonated loudly throughout the continent.

In 2000, Mala Rodríguez released her first album “Lujo Ibérico”, which was one of the highest-selling albums in Spanish hip-hop history and almost immediately reached Gold sales, proving that her flamenco-roots rap was here to stay.  Mala Rodríguez launched her second album, “Alevosía” (2003), garnering interest overseas and achieving Gold sales. Yet, it was “Malamarismo” (2007) that turned Mala Rodríguez into a worldwide artist, gaining her audiences all across the US and Latin America.  This third album received glowing critical acclaim and several awards and nominations: MTV Latin America for “Best New Artist”, MTV Europe for “Best Spanish Arist”, and a Latin Grammy nomination for “Best Urban Music Album.” Mala was also featured on tracks released by international acts Akon, Calle 13, Bajo Fondo, Kumbia All Starz and Julieta Venegas, further cementing Mala’s place on the world stage.
