    Juanes 1

    Juanes, born Juan Esteban Aristizábal Vásquez, is a Colombian musician who was formerly a member of the heavy metal band Ekhymosis. As a solo artist, he’s sold over 15 million albums worldwide and has won 20 (you read that correctly!) Latin Grammy Awards.

    Raised in Medellín, Colombia, the singer first picked up a guitar at the age of seven. The rest, as they say, is history. He formed Ekhymosis at age 15, and the band went on to release five albums and mega-hits like “Sólo” in 1992. The band broke up in 1997 and Juanes broke out as a solo artist in 2000.
