Yesterday I posted about Juanes over at Proyecto Colombia. Juanes is a Colombian singer that has really done well in the US market but has not “crossed over” (as in recorded an English language Album) like Shakira or Ricky Martin. Juanes defends his move by saying tha the still thinks, dreams and writes music in Spanish, and I personally think is an excellent point of view. Music is supposed to be about self expression, not about making money. We all know how many artist “sell out.”
Juanes is an artist that writes music that moves your soul. From very politically charged music to love songs that expose his tenderness and passion. I have translated a couple of his songs to English and find his sound both unique and get up and dance worthy. His blend of Colombia and rock makes for an interesting mix that attacks the senses in a very moving way. That and the ladies thinking that he is not harsh on the eyes makes him a superstar that is really shinning.
Check out Juanes website. (You can listen to clips of his music)
