DEJAME ENTRAR won the 2002 Latin Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Tropical Album. "Dejame Entrar" won for Best Tropical Song.
On 2001's Grammy-winning DEJAME ENTRAR, Colombian performer Carlos Vives presents a dynamic set of songs in the Vallenato folk style, which draws heavily on Caribbean influences. Whether leading his band through vibrant upbeat numbers (the uplifting title track) or more reflective tunes (the pensive "Santa Elegia"), the former telenovela star always lets his expressive vocals shine through, resulting in one of his finest releases.
