With the thematic axis of nonviolence towards women and musicals celebrating careers, Premios Soberano delivered on Tuesday its highest award, the Gran Soberano, to veteran merenguero Sergio Vargas.
“I cry for the music schools in the country so that our young people have better behavior”, he said upon receiving the statuette a happy Sergio, who was also the object of a musical tribute in which they sang Gabriel, El Mayor, Cherito, Sexappeal, Eddy Herrera and his brothers Kaky and Johnny Vargas.
The film “Carpinteros” won three statuettes of the awards given by the Asociación de Cronistas de Arte (Acroarte) and the Cervecería Nacional Dominicana, this time in its 34th edition.
With two statuettes went producer Iván Ruiz (as animator and for the program “El Show del Mediodía” of channel 9), the play “Yago” and the singers Natti Natasha (“Outstanding soloist abroad” and “Criminal “(A duet with Ozuna) and Nathalie Peña Comas as” Outstanding classical artist abroad “and” Lyric singer”.
The production of Alberto Zayas fulfilled expectations with a colorful set and a dynamic walk through the different popular rhythms, although with a marked urban accent that sought connection with the new audiences. The producer earned his pass for next year.
At the gala, exponents such as the Puerto Rican star Daddy Yankee, the pointer Ozuna, the novel Natti Natasha and the Dominicans Don Miguelo, Mozart la Para, Chimbala and Liro Shaq stood out. At the opening they sang “Bye, bye” and “Llevo la vainita”.
Also moments of humor were generated, in which Roberto Ángel Salcedo and Nashla Bogaert flowed down the predictions against to obtain deserving roles of loud applause.
Several winners or awards presenters referred to gender violence and one of them was “Big Papi” David Ortiz, who asked to end the mistreatment of women. “Femicide is not a game,” he reflected.
Notable absences: Toño Rosario, who took the Merenguero del Año statuette, Frank Reyes the Bachatero del Año and Zacarías Ferreira the Bachata del Año: “Asesina”.
