A new documentary captures Alejandro Sanz’s journey from playing rock songs with friends on the streets of his neighborhood as a teen, to playing flamenco guitar with Paco de Lucia, to recording the two biggest-selling albums in Spain and becoming one of Latin music’s biggest stars while remaining “a normal person.”
Sanz. Lo Que Fui es lo Que Soy (Sanz. What I Was Is Who I Am) will have its premiere at the Malaga Film Festival on April 19, the same day it opens in theaters around Spain.
The doc uses previously unseen footage to create what producers of the film call “a portrait that is intimate, personal and up-close.”
Sanz, 49, has been awarded 20 Latin Grammys and three Grammys since the release of his breakthrough album Más in 1997.
