Juanes: Pop Music from Colombia

Much like crossover Colombian pop singer Shakira, Juanes is a Colombian pop and rock singer whose Spanish-language music is enjoyed around the world. His four albums include hits such as La camisa negra, Gotas de agua dulce, A Dios le pido and Fotografía. He has received multiple Latin Grammy Awards and performs his music with other great musicians like Nelly Furtado, Andrés Calamaro and the Black Eyed Peas.

He is also a huge philanthropist and started a foundation to help remove land mines.

Some of his music is heavily influenced by hard rock, but my favorites are his pop songs, like this from most recent album La Vida es un Ratico.
