Kaleth Morales

Kaleth Miguel Morales Troya was a Colombian vallenato singer and songwriter, best known as the leader of the "Nueva Ola" ("New Wave") movement in Vallenato, having released singles such as Vivo en el Limbo. As a bonus, it is said that he was the only vallenato singer/songwriter who had finished a career at a university.

Kaleth Morales was born in Valledupar, Cesar, Colombia to singers Miguel Morales and Nevis Troya. He was one of three brothers and two sisters. When Morales was thirteen years old, he made his first musical composition, a song called Solo he Quedado ("''Alone I'm Left"). Although it was never recorded, it was the song that drove him into music, and soon afterwards his father gave him a guitar to aid his creativity.

In addition to working on music, Kaleth began studying medicine at the Sinu University, in Cartagena in 2000. Afterwards he lived in Cartagena as a single father, with his daughter Katrina Lieth Morales, born in 2001.
