Netflix Star Carolina Ramirez Is More Than Just A Stellar Actress, She’s A Social Media Highlight

If you’re Colombian then you already know about the talented Carolina Ramirez. If not, you must watch all 82 episodes of La Reina del Flow on Netflix and learn about her skills. All it takes is a deep social media dive, which we all seem to have time for these days, to find out that she is so much more than her character on the Netflix show. Here’s what we’ve been able to gather about the Colombian actress.

Meet Carolina Ramirez.

Netflix purchased the Colombian telenovela of the year and all 82 episodes are streaming, featuring this beautiful angel. I know you miss telenovelas now that cable is a relic of the past generation.

She’s stunning, and the world is starting to take notice.

So many people are hoping that she will be the love of their lives but she’s pretty busy right now so just hold tight.

Who doesn’t have a thing for strong mujeres?

In La Reina del Flow, she’s plays Yeimy Montoya, a girl who was wronged by Charly Flow. Don’t worry, after he frames her and puts her in jail for 17 years, she comes back as an undercover DEA agent and ruins his life. ????

Baby Carolina was a tortured ballerina.

Today is a dancing star on Canción para Dueto.

Teatro Colón describes the Colombian play as “a perfect and unforgettable mix of silence, music, surreal humor and a body placed on the edge of the abyss. The stage is poetically constructed and is used for an eternal wake, an old house in the middle of a solitary place that transforms subtly into a furious sea, into a room where everything comes to life, where an overflowing party will happen, where a woman will transform in bird, where a demented game of apparitions and disappearances will take over everything.”

Her selfie game is something we should aspire to.

After you watch her play a tough woman on “La Reina del Flow,” you might be surprised to see all of the photos of her smiling and happy.

She also has a sense of humor.

Carolina is of the people. Don’t expect to see a Kardashian-esque feed when you visit her social media pages. She is more about being real than fake and “perfect.”

Ramirez has never been afraid to show her true face.

Actually, this is her Instagram avatar picture. You won’t find a single childhood photo that proves she was a happy child. She’s been plotting revenge since Day 1.

It’s kind of perfect when you see them.

Let’s not discuss the creepy clown that is probably causing her to make this face. Let’s instead marvel at the fact that every Latina grew up with this haircut.

This Gemini beauty is 35 years old.

Ramirez will be the first to post a photo of her getting skin rejuvenation work done. Like with surgical marker all over her face. She’s the most transparent queen you’ll see.

Her skillset as a dancer and singer make her a Renaissance woman of Colombia.

Carloina Ramirez was made famous in La Pola and is basically huge in the Colombian telenovela world. She has also starred in La hija del mariachi.

While she’s a rapper queen in La Reina del Flow, she’s plays a salsa queen en Ciudad delirio.

@carocali / Instagram

She plays Angie, a salsa dancer who has her own salsa school. She meets Javier, a Spanish pharmacologist away on a business trip to Colombia where the two fall in love.

Before you get too ahead of yourself, she is happily married.

@carocali / Instagram

Ramirez has been married to an Argentine businessman, named Mariano Bacaleinik since 2010.

She’s like super close with her brother.

Caption: “Cuando quiero estar de buen humor pienso en este man… mi hermano. No siempre nos la llevamos bien; tuvimos momentos de confrontación (con sangre incluida) como la mayoría de hermanos.”

English: “When I want to be in a good mood I think about this man … my brother. We do not always get along well; We had moments of confrontation (with blood included) like most siblings.”

“Te amo hermano, mi vida habría sido incompleta sin vos.”

@carocali / Instagram

For no reason whatsoever, Carolina Ramirez will tell the Instagram world how much she loves her hermanito.

Caption: “El querernos incondicionalmente lo aprendimos con los años, pero fundamentado en todos los momentos (buenos y malos) que estuvimos juntos como familia desde mis tres años cuando llegó a ocupar un lugar reservado y exclusivo en mi corazón. Él no cumple años hoy, no está enfermo ni estamos tan lejos. Hoy es un día cualquiera en el que se me dió por decirte: te amo hermano, mi vida habría sido incompleta sin vos ❤️????”

Ramirez also likes to wear beards in public.

@carocali / Instagram

I mean, this post is about how hermosa and how dorky this human is. Maybe it’s to disguise her fame in public, maybe it’s just because.

It’s just a thing she does.

@carocali / Instagram

There are so many photos of her on social media wearing fake facial hair in public. It’s kind of amazing how well she can pull it off.

Like our moms, she has to keep her facial hair under control.

@carocali / Instagram

Caption: “Nada como tener onda en santorini y no tener bigote de bronceado en tus vacaciones #lapropiapiquiñadevacas”

She might be the goofiest, non-serious artist in existence right now.

@carocali / Instagram

You just can’t imagine that this woman takes herself too seriously. She takes narcoleptic naps in the midst of art projects, and the people around her know that she not only wouldn’t care about this photo op, but that she’d post it on the internet to her 700k followers.

You can watch 61 hours of Ramirez on Netflix right now.

Trust that La Reina del Flow was picked up for a Part 2 for next summer. Watch with abandon.

At Least 17 Dead And Hundreds Injured Following Massive Protests Across Colombia

At Least 17 Dead And Hundreds Injured Following Massive Protests Across Colombia

A massive protest movement that swept across Colombia seems to have paid off – at least in the short term – as President Ivan Duque says that he will withdrawal the controversial tax plan that sent angry protesters into the streets. However, the protests claimed at least 17 victims who died during the unrest and hundreds more were injured.

Now that the president has withdrawn the controverial bill, many are wondering what’s next and will they have to take to the streets once again.

Massive protests claimed the lives of at least 17 people and hundreds more were injured across Colombia.

Unions and other groups kicked off marches on Wednesday to demand the government of President Ivan Duque withdraw a controversial tax plan that they say unfairly targets the most vulnerable Colombians.

Isolated vandalism, clashes between police and protesters and road blockades occurred in several cities on Saturday, and riot police were deployed in the capital.

Rights organization Human Rights Watch said it had received reports of possible police abuse in Cali, and local human rights groups alleged up to 17 deaths occurred.

After a week of protests, the government has shelved the controversial plan.

Faced with the unrest, the government of President Ivan Duque on Sunday ordered the proposal be withdrawn from Congress where it was being debated. In a televised statement, he said his government would work to produce new proposals and seek consensus with other parties and organizations.

President Duque, in his statement, acknowledged “it is a moment for the protection of the most vulnerable, an invitation to build and not to hate and destroy”.

“It is a moment for all of us to work together without paltriness,” he added. “A path of consensus, of clear perceptions. And it gives us the opportunity to say clearly that there will be no increase in VAT for goods and services.”

The tax reform had been heavily criticized for punishing the middle classes at a time of economic crisis brought on by the coronavirus pandemic. The government introduced the bill on April 15 as a means of financing public spending. The aim was to generate $6.3 billion between 2022 and 2031 to reignite the fourth largest economy in Latin America.

Interview: Colombian Duo Cali y El Dandee Talk New Single “Despiértate”, Winning Grammy For Producer of the Year and More

Interview: Colombian Duo Cali y El Dandee Talk New Single “Despiértate”, Winning Grammy For Producer of the Year and More

Fresh off their performance at the Latin American Music Awards, Colombian sibling pop duo Cali y El Dandee are back for more with their new single “Despiérate.”

In our exclusive interview with Latido Music by mitú, Cali, born Alejandro Rengifo, and Dandee, born Mauricio Rengifo, shared their excitement over their new collaboration, how they started working in music. Dandee aka Mauricio winning the Producer of the Year award at the Latin GRAMMYs, and more.

“Despiértate” is their new collab with Venezuelan sibling duo Mau y Ricky and Puerto Rican singer Guaynaa.

The collaboration had been something the brothers wanted to do for a very long time. The creative process for the song started with Cali y El Dandee and Mau y Ricky in the studio working on half of “Despiértate” and loving the sound so far. But they realized they were missing something.

“We loved the fresh sound of the song and how the synergy we achieved with them (Mau y Ricky) and then we invited Guaynaa, who gave it an Urban spin and the Puerto Rican touch the song needed,” added Dandee.

They started writing and producing music while they were in school.

Their very first “studio” was just a desktop computer and a microphone they had back home. Dandee was always interested in production, and as their music evolved they started showing their friends what they were working on. Both of their stage names come from their childhood nicknames: Cali, for Alejandro and Dandee for Mauricio.

Going viral and building fanbases in places like Spain and Argentina.

While Cali y El Dandee had a solid fanbase in their native Colombia, they were not aware that their music was making waves in places like Spain in the early days of streaming around 2009-2010, when their music videos were first being shared online.

“Actually, it took us a while to realize that we were popular in Spain because our team would let us know about our music sales rising, but we had never been there before or knew anyone there from their local radio stations. When we finally went to Spain, it was a big shock, we realized that our music had an audience not only there, but also in places like Mexico, Argentina and it was truly exciting to see that,” Dandee said.

Cali y El Dandee credit Reggaeton for embracing this new wave of collaborations among artists.

Cali y El Dandee aren’t strangers to collaborations. The pair have worked with Danna Paola, Greeicy, Sebastián Yatra, and Reik to name a few.

When it comes to creating these collaborations, Cali shared that either they already have someone in mind that they think could be a good fit as they create the first drafts of the song in the studio, or they meet up with artists and create the collaborations from scratch.

“The collaborations have played a very important role for us and have allowed us to refine and change our sound, and I think that for Urban music, collaborations are what have made this genre last so long, and why it’s heard in so many languages and how the streams nowadays come from different countries,” Cali added.

Dandee (Mauricio) talked about winning Producer of The Year at this year’s Latin GRAMMYs.

“It was a moment I had been waiting for since I was a child, a dream come true”, Dandee shared. While Mauricio is aware that there are other producers who are doing an equal or better job than him, he takes this as an opportunity to keep working hard.

“I remember so many times watching the Grammys thinking to myself ‘one day I’ll win one,’ and using that as a fuel to know that one day you’ll be on that stage as well,” Dandee added.

Their latest album Colegio is a nostalgic homage to school days.

I asked the brothers if there’s something from their school days that they would bring back.

“Renting movies at Blockbuster,” Dandee shared. “That moment when you’d go on a Friday night to rent a movie and you had the weekend to watch it. Next thing you know, you’d rewatch the movie like 2-3 times because you had to return it. It’s unheard of now to rewatch a movie within a matter of days,” Cali added.

However, there’s one thing both brothers would definitely bring back:

“More than anything, we would want to bring back concerts, and seeing people interact with the music live,” Cali said.
