Better known as “Juancho Rois” he is one of the best accordion players in Colombia. Composition is one of his great virtues, his charisma and companionship are main qualities of his personality, thanks to this he becomes an unconditional friend and accomplice of Diomedes with whom he lives and enjoys great moments marked by triumphs and success.
An elitist woman
She is Lucia´s mother; she does everything her husband tells her to do. She always wants the best for her daughter and definitely Diomedes is not what she wants for her. She always tries to make Lucia understand that she must aim for a man of good family, wealthy and well educated so that she never miss anything in life. She predicts that next to Diomedes she will only have miseries
He is a great lover of Vallenato music; his greatest passions are composing and playing the accordion. He finds a diamond in the rough in his nephew Diomedes and he dedicates time and effort to turn him into a great singer and songwriter. He is an honorable, humble and noble man. He dies in a car accident in which Diomedes was driving.
The counselor She is Diomedes´ sister and therefore she has had to struggle with his success, failure, right and wrong decisions. Her loyalty, humility, nobility and frankness turn her into a guide for Diomedes in his search for true love and happiness. She has suffered and will probably always suffer with each wrong step her brother takes.
Farmer with a kind heart
She is defined by her humility and simplicity like all agrarian women. She loves house work, and dedicates her daily life to it. A fighter, cordial woman who carries the responsibility of raising her nine children and at the same time maintain a stable marriage with Rafael Maria, which is why she decides to ignore her husband´s unfaithfulness and continues to fight for her family.
He cannot avoid temptation.
He loves his wife Elvira, but is unfaithful with any woman that is willing to spend a few passionate nights with him, because he always responds for his home and children. An excellent father, overprotective, persistent and good drinker of alcohol. He works really hard to ensure his family´s well-being. His little talent for business leads him to make bad decisions, but he knows how to overcome the blows that life throws at him.
Materialistic – clever - manipulative
She comes from a wealthy, honest and hardworking family. She was educated under classist and sexist guidelines, but her romantic heart is blindly seduced by Diomedes Diaz, and she trust on her intelligence and audacity to keep her relationship with “El Cacique” hidden.
After a few years of marriage with Diomedes she learns that the only thing she can expect from that relationship is the convenience of being the wife of the most well paid singer in the country so she finds a cure to her love life frustrations in cars, jewelry and living the good life.
As a child he lived like an adult and as an adult he behaved like a child. Diomedes Diaz grew up as a humble man, hard worker, with disposition to help his parents and being always a good brother. A great Singer and songwriter, his lyrics are filled with feeling and poetry, women are his main source of inspiration as he is all a lover and womanizer. He is a devout follower of the Virgin of Carmen. As an adult he is full of excesses, limitless, addicted to cocaine and alcohol. He always shows a joyous outgoing personality and a euphoria that is reflected in his songs and his presentations on stage, where he pleases his followers with great joy
