Omara Portuondo and Juan Luis Guerra sing with Julio Iglesias


According to EFE, Cuban icon Omara Portuondo is among the Caribbean singers who have joined Julio Iglesias on his new album México & Amigos [Mexico & Friends], which is already available. Portuondo sings a duet with the Spaniard in “Échame a mí la culpa,” by Ferrusquilla (the late Mexican composer and actor José Ángel Espinoza). On this album, he also sings a duet—“Júrame”—with Dominican singer Juan Luis Guerra.

Other artists such as Plácido Domingo, Joaquín Sabina, Pablo Alborán, Andrés Calamaro, Thalía, Diego Torres, Eros Ramazzotti, and the duo Sin Bandera collaborate on the new album. Here, Iglesias pays tribute to great Mexican composers; it is also the first recording in which Iglesias sings duets.

Among the 12 tracks of the album are “Júrame,” with Juan Luis Guerra), Mexican corrido “Juan charrasqueado,” by Víctor Cordero (sung by Argentine singer Andrés Calamaro) and “Fallaste corazón” by Cucó Sánchez (with Spanish tenor Plácido Domingo).
