Julio Iglesias presents his new album 'Mexico & Amigos'

MUMBAI: Julio Iglesias, the best-selling Latin artist, releases his first ever duet album titled México & Amigos.

With this album, and after a year and a half after the release of the multi-platinum selling album México, Julio Iglesias renews his deep ties to Mexico, performing each song with the passion only he brings. A homage to Mexican songwriters, the album includes 12 tracks with a unique Mexican flavor and his unmistakable voice; this time, accompanied by superstar Latin artists that add something special to each song.

‘Júrame’, written by Maria Grever, is a beautiful duet with non-other than Juan Luis Guerra.

Mexico’s ‘Juan Charrasqueado’, written by Victor Cordero, is recorded by the one and only Argentinian Andrés Calamaro, in a brave and very personal performance.

Again, Julio is joined by his beloved friend Plácido Domingo, with whom he’s sung in the past. In this case, they collaborate on ‘Fallaste Corazón’ written by Cuco Sanchez.

Always in touch with artists from new generations and incredible careers, Julio sings with popular duo Sin Bandera, to perform ‘Ella’, written by Jose Alfredo Jiménez.

‘Amanecí En Tus Brazos’, also written by Jose Alfredo Jiménez, is performed with the Spanish artist Pablo Alborán. This was Julio’s first time singing with Alborán, one of the most relevant Latin singer/songwriters.

At last, Julio sings ‘Y Nos Dieron Las Diez’ with the great singer/songwriter Joaquín Sabina. Although written by a Spanish songwriter, the track is considered a standard of the Mexican repertoire.

The Cuban grand dame, Omara Portuondo performs ‘Échame A Mi La Culpa’, a track written by Ferrusquilla; Julio incorporated this song into his repertoire many years ago.

With Mario Domm (Camila), Julio unites yet again with Mexican artists of this generation, singing ‘Se Me Olvidó Otra Vez’, written by Juan Gabriel.

With Thalía, with whom Julio has performed in the past, they sing a classic Mambo ‘Quien Será’ written by Luis Demetrio and Pablo Beltrán.

‘Usted’, written by Gabriel Ruiz Galindo and Jose Antonio Zorrilla had to be in this album and is performed by Julio and Diego Torres.

‘La Media Vuelta’, another one of José Alfredo Jiménez’s classic tracks is sung by Italian star Eros Ramazzotti and Julio, in a flawless interpretation.

This album ends with Julio Iglesias on his own, singing the eternal hit ‘Mexico Lindo’, written by Chucho Monge.

Having recorded his first tribute album to Mexico in 1976, Latin music’s most successful artist once again pays homage to a country whose support was instrumental in his rise to fame.

Julio Iglesias first performed in Mexico during the early 1970s and quickly won over the world’s largest Spanish-speaking country. Julio, likewise, fell in love with the nation and has continually remained well-versed in Mexican culture, history, music and customs.

While putting the finishing touches on México, he noted that, “Mexico is a country that I love dearly. The Mexican people have given me many indelible moments in my life. I know this country as if it was my homeland, and I always carry it in my soul. Mexican music is universal, and its composers are legendary.”
