Declared “the single most important figure of the past decade in Latin pop music” by the Los Angeles Times, JUANES is a TWELVE-TIME LATIN GRAMMY WINNER who TIME Magazine selected as “One of the 100 Most Influential People in the World.” The top-selling Latin rock artist in the world and the genre’s leading social activist, Juanes’ multi-platinum breakthrough album “Un Dia Normal” set the record for the longest Top-10 chart run in Latin music history. Likewise notching an astounding two-year chart run, the guitarist/singer-songwriter’s critically acclaimed follow-up “Mi Sangre” (My Blood) sold over 4 million copies while bringing Juanes to 1 on the charts throughout Latin America, the U.S. and across Europe. The corresponding “Mi Sangre Tour” was the most extensive worldwide tour ever mounted by a Latin artist, with 170 concerts performed before millions of fans at arenas and stadiums in 31 countries on four continents. In recognizing Juanes’ extensive charitable endeavors (most notably on behalf of the innocent victims of Anti-personnel land mines) the Colombian President has called the artist “Colombia’s greatest Ambassador.”
