The singer of “La Camisa Negra” is one of the leading South American musicians of his generation. The second most successful artist in the history of the Latin Grammy Awards, with 26 awards to his name, the Colombian star has also won two Grammy Awards and been named Knight of the French Order of Arts and Letters (Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres). Juanes started out as part of a rock band in the 1990s before launching his solo career in 2000. The singer and guitarist plays a passionate blend of Latin pop, rock, cumbia and reggaeton: a powerful cocktail that has sold over 15 million albums around the world. Juanes has performed with Tony Bennett and Herbie Hancock, but this summer marks his debut at the Montreux Jazz Festival.
