Willy Chirino combines the musical traditions of Cuba with American rock and jazz, helping to create the “Miami Sound” of Salsa music. The Cuban-born and South Florida-based vocalist and bandleader boasts a musical repertoire of over 100 songs and 30 albums making Chirino one of the most emblematic Tropical music acts around. More than 60 artists have covered his hit “Soy”, among them the Gipsy Kings, who sold more than seven million copies.

With a career spanning four decades Willy has racked up quite a list of awards for his musical and charity contributions to the Latino community: 2006 Grammy for Best Salsa/Merengue Album, 2007 Latin Grammy Nomination for Best Salsa Album, street named after him in Miami, a star on the famous and very Cuban Calle Ocho, a FACE award, and recognition by UNICEF and a Hispanic Heritage Award for his charity efforts with The Willy Chirino Foundation.
