If you may ask the generation-next as to who they think is the greatest Spanish musician of the recent times and without a doubt, the answer would be Enrique Iglesias! Well, that promptly explains his King of Latin Pop label. But is Spanish music all about Enrique only? Absolutely not! He has become an indelible part of Hispanic music but there is more to it than just him. Placido Domingo, a Spanish tenor and conductor, achieved worldwide fame for his powerful voice and versatility. Jennifer Lopez may be American by nationality but it was her fifth Hispanic album, ‘Como Ama una Mujer’ that helped her become the most influential Spanish singer of US. Nacho Cano rose to the top charts in Spanish music with his album ‘Mecano’ that became the biggest Spanish pop rock band of all time. Joan Manuel Serrat has been one of the most important figures of modern popular music in Spanish language, thanks to his lyrical style. Other popular Spanish musicians include Manuel de Falla y Matheu, Isaac Albéniz and Enrique Granados.
