Club Low Tone, a new Colombian comedy-drama, will premiere on Disney Plus on February 22, 2023 at 3:00 am ET. The Spanish version of the show stars Latin luminaries such as Carlos Vives and Julián Arango. Since its first release, the trailer for the new comedy series has received rave reviews:
According to the official synopsis of the program:
“Amaranto Molina, an unorthodox music teacher, teaches at a school that specializes in music instruction. The institution follows archaic regulations and disadvantaged students who do not meet the standards of commercial success.”
The program will be produced by TeleColombia for The Walt Disney Company and will consist of 10 thirty-minute episodes.
Carles Vivos, a Latin music icon, will play an unorthodox music instructor in The Low Tone Club.
Carlos Vives, a renowned figure in the Latin music business, is without a doubt the program’s greatest achievement. Vives rose to fame with the 1994 release, La Gota Fría, and has over 13 albums and 30 singles to his credit. Carlos Vives’ career has taken off after the success of La Gota Fría. After consecutive successes in the form of four major albums and 17 singles, he finally won his first Grammy in 2002 for Déjame Entras, becoming the first Colombian to do so.
In The Low Tone Club, audiences will witness the return of Carlos Vives to the screen as an unconventional music teacher, Amaranto Molina, who leads a group of students struggling to make their mark at a music school. Carlos Vives also created a song for the program called Tumbando Muros.
However, this is not the first time that Carlos Vives has been observed working with Disney. According to the Los Angeles Times:
“In addition, the Grammy and Latin Grammy winner has performed the song ‘Colombia, My Encanto’, which appears in the trailer for the animated film “Encanto.”
