If you have not seen the ‘Club de los Graves’ series on Disney Plus, you should run to see it. You will not find in it a work of art from the academy, perhaps you will find something more valuable; understand that the most important lessons in life are learned when we still live between dreams and reality. Because as the Little Prince said: “Older people are never able to understand things by themselves, and it is very boring for children to have to give them explanations over and over again.”

Amaranto Molina, a disgraced music teacher looking for a second chance, faces an eccentric school director who, with the excuse of being the bearer of the secret to success, only seeks to serve his own interests. Molina unintentionally wanted to become the voice of the “nobodies” some young people relegated to failure. He accompanies them to challenge that modern maxim in which the goal is to be successful, perhaps forgetting something as simple in itself as being happy. Together with a man who has sacrificed his talent to earn a living, they challenge the establishment, understanding that to defeat it it will not be necessary to attack the mistakes of the other but, on the contrary, to promote their own talents and successes. In short, Amaranto is in itself a real lesson in leadership where leadership is not written in books full of useless adjectives but through empowering each person around him to seek his talent and simply accept the simplest of realities: success. It is nothing other than being happy doing what makes you happy.

Amaranto Molina, a name that in itself is quite Caribbean, is Carlos Vives. That same man who, being a samarium, challenged the distinguished lineage of Valledupar to merge the sounds of the accordion with what he himself called “El Rock de mi Pueblo”. And so without knowing it he took the classics of our province to the whole world. Not in vain the “vallenato purists” in the style of Mr. Kremmer attacked him as Vives narrated in his song “las malas lenguas”. But just like Leandro, Diomedes and Paiyón himself from the series, through narrating his experiences in his songs, they prevailed against the supposedly intellectual bullying of musical purists.

Carlos Vives established himself as the “King of Vallenato” as he himself sang it at dawn in the Parque de la Leyenda in Valledupar. But not with a crown of ego and self-recognition, rather he was a symbol of simplicity. Well, it was that same Vives, perhaps being Amaranto, who brought Alfredo Gutiérrez back to the stage of the Vallenato Festival, mysteriously silenced by the foundation that controls the event. Or the same Amaranto who brought us to tears singing along with Martín Elías Díaz who life was not enough to dream even more.

Thus, Carlos Vives, who will now also be known as Amaranto Molina, is reborn as an actor to once again make us dream, because as the little prince said: “All the older people were children at first, although few of them remember it.”
