Joan Sebastian is one of Mexico’s biggest music stars, a multi-Latin Grammy award winner and a top-grossing live performer, almost mythical in stature. But writing songs that touch the people he loves is still his greatest passion. Known as both “The People’s Poet” and “The King of Jaripeo,” the singer/songwriter has been writing and arranging songs since he was a teenager, and has racked up hits from the 1970s to the present. As a performer, he’s one of Mexico’s top-grossing acts, regularly selling out venues on both sides of the border. As a songwriter, his compositions have been covered by a pantheon of Mexican stars, including Alejandro Fernandez, Rocio Durcal, Luis Miguel, Vicente Fernández and more. As an artist, he’s been showered with awards, including multiple gold and platinum records and the ASCAP Silver Pen award. www.joansebastian.com
With more than 12 million records sold, 23 albums and 7 GRAMMYs ® under his belt, multi-platinum singer-songwriter Pepe Aguilar is an impressive master of fusion whose proven capacity to inspire audiences with his music and talent has no boundaries.
