Who says EDM and Latin pop can’t mix? First Afrojack and Luis Fonsi shared a historic moment onstage at the Billboard Latin Music Awards last month, and now Juanes holds court with French DJ/producer Cedric Gervais on the main stage of the fourth annual Sunset Music Festival in Tampa over Memorial Day weekend.
Introducing the Colombian superstar before a crowd of almost 30,000 on the fest’s rain-soaked opening day Saturday, Gervais listed off Juanes’ many accomplishments (among them having sold millions of albums and won more Latin Grammys than we can count) — but not before shouting “¿Donde está mi gente Latina?” in his best Spanish.
This being Florida, Juanes didn’t exactly need an introduction. The crowd instantly went wild — and if you look closely you can spot a few Colombian flags — as Juanes took the stage to perform “Este Amor,” his new collaboration with Gervais.
The track starts off showcasing Juanes’ vocals and slowly builds to an ethereal, fist-pumping climax.
