Tito and Sergio traveled to Calí, Colombia to shoot the video for “Viva la Música” which was directed by renowned director, David Impeluso. “Viva la Música” spreads a positive message of celebrating music and life.
Sergio George pitched the idea of collaborating on “Viva la Música” over a phone call the artist made to his longtime producer. “The idea of working on “Viva la Música” came organically. Tito called me to talk about his next project, and that is how we came about collaborating on “Viva la Música.”- commented the renowned producer Sergio George.
This year marks the over four decades of Salsa Star’s Tito Nieves successful career whose countless hits in both English and Spanish are part of history. Each of the albums Sergio George has produced in the last 25 years has proven to be an invaluable contribution to popular music. It is impossible to speak of “salsa” without mentioning Tito Nieves and Sergio George. The coming together of the two salsa giants was the natural evolution of years of working together.
The new single and video for “Viva la Música” will be released at the end of the month of July. Tito and Sergio are gearing up for a hectic international promo tour.
