Juanes Rocks AVA, Regains His Edge

Posted By on Fri, May 31, 2013 at 3:15 PM

Grammy award-winner Juanes performed at the Anselmo Valencia Amphitheater Thursday night for the latest stop on his Loud and Unplugged Tour, playing a great mix of both new songs and deep cuts from earlier in his career.

Opening for Juanes was a new, up-and-coming singer, Raquel Sofia. Sofia, comparable at times to La Mari, of the flamenco-electronic group Chambao, has a great stage presence — her music is certainly worth the time it would take to seek out.

Juanes opened his portion with his classic song "Fíjate Bien." and continued to play a mix of songs from every album including the song "Fotografía" with Sofia joining to sing Nelly Furtado's lyrics. Juanes also sang his own rendition to Bob Marley’s “Could You Be Loved."

His concert was electrifying and overall a great show. If anyone had doubts whether Juanes was losing his edge after releasing his last album P.A.R.C.E., which definitely was not his best work, would be happy to know he hasn't.

Juanes is back and ready to rock out.
