He came, he saw and he Conquered: Mora takes the iconic Puerto Rican Coliseum in 3 sold-out nights
The eclectic urban music genius known for hits and collabs such as “Memorias”, “La inocente” or Bad Bunny’s “Verano sin Ti” has now entered a new era for his career after touring Europe, but his ‘Rubicon’ moment came on November 9th as he returned to his hometown of San Juan for his greatest test yet: Filling up the iconic arena with fellow Boricuas.
As the clock struck 10:00 pm last Thursday, the illustrious Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot, affectionately known as “El Choliseo” to the locals, dimmed its lights. A momentary hush fell upon the crowd of over 15 thousand, only to be shattered by thunderous cheers. The universal signal had arrived – it was showtime.
The speakers roared to life, blasting the first few electrifying synth notes of “Media Luna,” seamlessly transitioning into “Pasajero.” Somewhere in those exciting moments, Mora‘s triumphant return to his beloved Puerto Rico was etched in history. The producer, composer, singer, and songwriter had come home once again, and in the most gratifying way possible – by selling out three consecutive nights at the revered “Choliseo.” This feat is a testament to the adoration and unwavering support of Puerto Rico’s discerning audience, who now hail Mora as their cherished pride and joy. From this point forward, no matter what lies ahead, he has achieved it all, leaving an indelible mark wherever he goes.

The long catwalk-like stage ran deep into the crowd, surrounding Mora on either side, while the huge vertical screens behind him projected him to those further out like the Icon that he’s quickly becoming. His doubtless charisma and sympathy brought him close to his fans time and time again, sharing loving greetings with genuine warmth.
“Thank you for all the support you have given me since day one. I’ll carry a piece of each one of you in my heart. I love you,” -Mora
One of the moments that stood out that night came in relatively early: Seeing strut down the stage, arms outstretched and pyrotechnics burning up behind him as the crowd joined him in singing the 2nd verse to “ESCALOFRIOS” was a hair-raising moment of realization that he is something truly special.
The fans were treated to an extraordinary musical event that featured special appearances by several renowned figures in the urban music genre, including, Álvaro Díaz, Rainao, Pao Pao, and many others, in fact, another great moment that night came when legends Arcangel and Yandel joined Mora on the stage to perform “Pólvora”, “Laguna”, “La Jumpa” and of course “Mírala Bien”.
From Thursday Through Sunday, for 3 amazing hours each day, the Choliseo lit up in more ways than one thanks to the infectious and unstoppable beats of this masterful artist and his friends. One shouldn’t expect less than excellence when it comes to Latin America’s newest generation of performers and musicians, and the Charts definitely back that up. Mora’s career is six plus years in the making, and back then he began by collaborating, producing and writing for some of the most influential names in the game of Urban Latin pop music. Indeed, he’s worked closely with the likes of Jhayco and even Bad Bunny on more than one occasion, and now world-wide audiences are seeing and hearing what his colleagues and collaborators have.
