Alejandro Sanz 2013 Tour in Washington, DC: La música no se toca
One of the world’s most internationally renowned Latino artists comes to DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C.
Alejandro Sanz’s career in music began in Spain in the 1990s, with his first disc Viviendo Deprisa (1991), which became the top-selling album of the year. This record was followed by two other hit albums: Si tú me miras (1993) and Alejandro Sanz 3 (1995). Yet it was his 1997 album Más that launched him to international fame, selling over 5 million copies. Next came El alma al aire (2000), No es lo mismo (2003), and El tren de los momentos (2006). Later, his Paraíso Express (2009), brought him major recognition, giving rise to one of the biggest concert tours of 2010: more than 800,000 viewers enjoyed the concerts of his Tour Paraíso, which took him to the main venues of Latin America, Spain and the United States.
In 2011, he was honoured with prestigious awards, including the Spanish Ministry of Culture’s Medal of Merit in Fine Arts, the White House Vision Award for his philanthropic work through the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, and the ASCAP Award (given by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) in recognition of his great contributions to Latin music.
His latest album, La música no se toca, was released on 25 September 2012. This record was produced by Alejandro himself, along with the famous producer and arranger Julio Reyes Copello, a winner of 2 Grammys and 9 ASCAP Awards. Before its release, La música no se toca was already reaping huge success with its first single, No Me Compares, which debuted in the number 1 slot on the iTunes charts in 18 countries around the world and hit the top of the radio charts in the United States, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Spain, Argentina, Colombia, Chile and Ecuador, among others.
Alejandro Sanz is the most Grammy-Award-winning Spanish artist in the world (16 Latin Grammys and 3 American Grammys). He has published 15 albums, including 11 studio recordings, and all of his works have gone platinum in Spain, Latin America and the United States.
