Willy Chirino

Combining the musical traditions of Cuba with American rock and jazz, Cuba-born and South Florida-based vocalist and bandleader Willy Chirino helped to create the "Miami sound" of salsa music. The composer of more than 100 songs, Chirino's material has been covered by a lengthy list of artists including Raphael, Ricardo Montaner, Rocio Jurado, Celia Cruz, Oscar D'Leon, Angela Carrasco, Jorge Muniz, and Nydia Caro. Chirino's song "Soy" has been recorded by more than 60 artists, including the Gipsy Kings, whose interpretation sold more than four million copies. Chirino also composed and performed the theme songs for Spanish-language television soap operas La Zulianita and Pobre Diabla. Chirino has received numerous awards throughout his career. He was named King of Miami's Calle Ocho Festival in 1993. Two years later, a section of NW 17th Avenue in Miami was christened Willy Chirino Way. Chirino received a UNICEF award for his work for children via the Willy Chirino Foundation. In May 1989, Chirino opened a restaurant and night club, Zarabanda, in Coral Gables, Florida. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

Ever since I heard him for the first time about 10 years ago he has been one of my favorite Salsa artist. He is so talented and all his songs seem to carry some message. I just love him!

If only I knew how to do the 'Salsa'. The music has so much rhythm

Willy is great in the studio. I like his music. Nice mix of traditional Cuban sounds with modern American influences. However, live - he don't cut it. I saw him at a Salsa festival in LA and he was playing along with tracks.... Syncing to video. No energy. El Gran Combo came on after him and blew him away. Drop the electronics Willy and swing it with a LIVE BAND!
