Latin Grammy winner Jarabe de Palo kicks off US tour

Latin Grammy winner Jarabe de Palo is set to kick off a U.S. tour, with stops in New York, Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles and more, after his new album Somos debuted #1 on the iTunes Latin charts.

The music video for “Somos” premiered at People En Español and has been on daily rotation at MTV Tr3s. The new record features a collaboration with Ximena Sariñana.

Billboard premiered the second single from the new album.

Billboard writes, “Recalling past songs like the band’s early hit “Depende,” leader Pau Donés engages in some everyday existentialism in the catchy new sing-along song “Hoy No Soy Yo.”

Fronted by prolific songwriter Pau Donés, Barcelona-based Jarabe de Palo is characterized by a catchy fusion of rock and blues with Latin rhythms. The group originally broke onto the international scene with their timeless smash hit “La Flaca,” which was recently covered by Juanes for the new Santana album.

Throughout their storied career, Jarabe de Palo has been nominated for 13 Latin Grammy’s and sold more than five million albums worldwide, collaborating with a wide variety of major artists such as Celia Cruz, Compay Segundo, Pavarotti and Chrissy Hynde (The Pretenders).

Jarabe de Palo’s previous album Y Ahora Que Hacemos was nominated for a Latin Grammy and included the hit single “La Quiero A Morir,” featuring superstar Alejandro Sanz, which was on regular rotation at Latin pop radio stations from Los Angeles to Puerto Rico.
