City of Knowledge

Uruguayan singer-songwriter Jorge Dexler will perform before an intimate audience on the City of Knowledge campus at 7:00 p.m. The artiste was awarded an Oscar for best song for “Al Otro Lado Del Rio” for the movie “Motorcycle Diaries.” Since Drexler was not a widely-known figure, it was decided that Spanish actor Antonio Banderas would perform the song live on television for the awards. Displeased with this decision, he rectified the situation by singing a piece of the song a capella upon accepting the Oscar.

Tickets are on sale at the City of Knowledge from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and at el Apartamento on nocturnal hours for $50 pre-sale and $80 on the evening of the event.
