29 August 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Global star Sebastián Yatra officially debuts the show that pop music fans across North America have been anticipating for months: a passionate, musical, electric, and choreographed night of live music and emotion.

The “Dharma World Tour” kicked off last night in Houston, TX, after smashing, successful sold-out arenas in Europe and Latin America, and will continue across the country this fall reaching 22 major markets in North America, August through November.

The genre-versatile music orchestrator brings to life his multi-platinum “Dharma” with performances of fan-favorites like “Tacones Rojos,” 8x platinum hit “Pareja del Año”, 4x platinum smash “Chica Ideal”, and a heart-pulling new piano ballad “Contigo” from the “Dharma+” new deluxe album.

"I’m excited to finally bring the Dharma tour to North America” Sebastián Yatra shares with FLAUNT ahead of his tour kick-off tonight, “The crowds in Latin America and Europe have brought such amazing energy to the songs and I’m looking forward to experiencing that even more the next few months. It is always an honor to play shows in North America but this is my first ever headline tour in the region. I’m also performing in such well-known venues, which makes things even more special. Get ready for a super fun and energetic night where you’ll feel many different emotions and sing along to your favorite songs live!"

There’s no stopping the Colombian singer and songwriter, Sebastián Yatra who also surprised fans as the special guest on a remix for Lasso’s viral single, “Ojos Maronnes,” following last week’s Spanish/Arabic collaboration, “Ulayeh' ft. Nouaman Belaiachi, tracks only that further showcase the multi-platinum artist’s versatility across music genres.

If that’s not all, the multi-platinum music maker scored 4 Billboard Latin Music Award nominations last week, celebrating his “Dharma” album (and new “Dharma+” deluxe album) [stream here], boasting 9.1 Billion combined streams, a #1 peak rank on Spotify’s US & Global album debut and #1 on Billboard’s Latin Streaming & Latin digital song sales charts The most recent mega-single “Tacones Rojos” landed #1 on US Latin Radio and the viral smash was upped into a bilingual edit with John Legend, and most recently nabbed a Tiësto remix [stream here], with ranks on US TikTok’s Top 10 and rose on Spotify’s Top 50 Global, with +1.6 Billion streams.

Sebastián Yatra is building pillars for Latin music in the US proving the hitmaker’s strength for making feel-good music as an outlier in an otherwise reggaeton-dominated Latin genre through 5 Latin American Music Award nominations, 4 Premio Lo Nuestro, 4 Premio Tu Musica Urbana and 4 MTV Miaw this year. Sebastián Yatra has also graced back-to-back television appearances including two performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! (most recently, debuting the bilingual edition of his smash “Tacones Rojos,” as well as his RIAA-certified Gold “Dos Oruguitas”), and initially debuting the original “Tacones Rojos” on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. The chart-topping talent stunned the audience at the 94th annual Academy Awards by performing the Oscar-nominated single “Dos Oruguitas” from The Walt Disney animated film “ENCANTO,” following appearances on Good Morning America and CBS Mornings.
