Carnaval Miami represents culture, history, tradition, and goodwill. It is a meeting and reference point of our grandparents, parents, brothers & sisters, neighbors, generation after generation. And who could better represent these values, but the Kings of the Carnaval Miami of 2020?
The Montaner family is a true entertainment dynasty, passing on its legacy and talent from one generation to another. The famous singer and songwriter Ricardo Montaner was King of Carnaval Miami in 1992, and made us dance with his contagious hit “Vamos pa ‘la Conga”. Montaner is a father of 5, all singers, among whom are Mauricio and Ricardo.
This pair began to explore their art from an early age. In 2010, they decided to dedicate themselves completely to what they already knew was their passion, forming the duo that today is recognized internationally as Mau y Ricky. Mau, 24, and Ricky, 27, besides being performers and composers, are musicians and producers. They have composed hits for artists such as Ricky Martin, Juanes, Karol G, Jason Derulo, Becky G, Thalia, Miguel Bosé, Sofia Reyes, Natti Natasha, among others.
In 2017 they received a Latin GRAMMY nomination for “Best New Artist” and another as “Song of the Year” for their composition in “Vente Pa ‘Ca“, performed by Ricky Martin and Maluma. At the end of 2017, Mau y Ricky premiered their song titled “Mi Mala”, with the collaboration of Karol G. Less than a year ago they released “DESCONOCIDOS“, performed together with Camilo and Manuel Turizo, the song went 4 times Platinum, and has already reached 500 million views on YouTube and 287 million streams on Spotify. With the release of their most recent single, “La Boca“, the boys continue to leave their own legacy while creating a unique space for them within Latin music. They were nominated in three categories in the “Premios Juventud” 2019 and in two categories in the MTV Millennials Awards. The Montaner talent runs through the veins of this ingenious duo and for the first time in the history of Carnaval Miami we have a “ROYAL FAMILY”. MAU Y RICKY, Kings of Carnaval Miami 2020!
Two generations, one legacy, and three crowns.
