From Humacao to the World: Eladio Carrión



Hello everyone! For my first blog, I will be going over Eladio Carrión’s concert last month. So first of all, who is this guy? Eladio Carrión is an artist from Puerto Rico who primarily does latin trap and reggaeton. He has been on the scene since 2016 and has been slowly building up a huge fanbase ever since.


His concert here in Chicago was the second time he has presented here as he had done a small 45 minute set for Sueños earlier this year in May. One of my concerns going into this concert was if he could bring the energy that he has shown in previous concerts and festivals in Puerto Rico. I’ve been to a couple of shows from other Puertorican artists in Chicago and they have all felt like they are doing it just for the paycheck or to knock a place off their lists. Thankfully though, Eladio Carrión managed to deliver and create an amazing concert experience which I would say matches the way he presents in Puerto Rico.



He started off with “Padre Tiempo”, the same song as during his Sauce Boyz Festival back in May, and ended with the same song which was his music session with producer Bzrp.


Overall the energy stayed high throughout the entire concert which lasted about an hour and a half. The crowd was also very energetic and singing every single word which added to the experience as the crowd is just as important.



The venue, Aragon Ballroom, itself was a quite big change from Puerto Rico’s iconic Choliseo, or even the open-air space where he held his Sauce Boyz Festival. The venue is mostly standing which in my opinion was perfect for the amount of energy that Eladio Carrión was putting out. One of the best moments during his entire concert was when he sang his song “Mbappe” and made everyone stop recording with their phones. The amount of energy put out during this song was the highest I’ve ever seen for a performer and a crowd.



One last thing that was quite expected, but still disappointing is that I’m very used to artists bringing many guests to their concerts. For example, when Eladio Carrión did his first Choliseo in Puerto Rico he brought out artists such as Karol G, Myke Towers, De la Ghetto, Justin Quiles, and many more. Even without sharing the stage with these artists, it was still an impressive showing from him.
