Sebastián Yatra announced new North American tour dates, as an additional leg of his Dharma World Tour. Spanning 22 dates across the US, Puerto Rico, and Canada, the tour launches on August 25 in Houston, TX and ends on November 12 in San Juan, PR.
The Colombian singer-songwriter recently kicked off the extensive world tour in Mexico City, before heading to Europe and South America. For tickets and more information, visit Yatra’s official website.
Yatra is currently touring in support of his chart-topping third studio album, Dharma, which was released in January. The album finds the bilingual star blending a range of influences, including reggaeton, rock, and flamenco.
“It’s fun for me because if you listen to my music and you listen to ‘Dharma,’ I don’t sing any genre. I just sing songs, and I jump around from rhythm to rhythm, genre to genre. There’s like a punk rock song that’s very, like, Blink-182 in the album with Aitana from Spain,” Yatra told NPR.
The influential Latin artist has also found immense success with his song, “Dos Oruguitas,” from the soundtrack for Disney’s popular animated film, Encanto. He has since been nominated for an Oscar, in the category for Best Original Song, alongside writer Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Last September, Yatra teamed up with another highly-respected talent, Elvis Costello, to reimagine the latter artist’s “Big Tears” in Spanish (freshly-titled “Llorar.”) The song was recorded for Costello’s Spanish Model, which found some of today’s hottest Latin stars, including Juanes, Luis Fonsi, and Nina Diaz reinterpreting Costello’s 1978 album with the Attractions, This Year’s Model.
“I listened to Elvis Costello’s music thanks to my parents,” Yatra said in an earlier statement. “My voice sounds very different than in my other songs. It’s more rock, it helped me to get more confident and not to be scared of screaming or to let out my rawer side. I felt it was very beautiful to sing this in Spanish. I want to thank Elvis for having written this song.”
That sense of confidence will certainly follow Yatra throughout his tour, while fans can expect to hear the star’s biggest hits, including new songs from Dharma.
