The godfather of rock en español in his native Spain, singer and songwriter Enrique Bunbury is among the most successful musical artists to emerge from Western Europe in the late 20th century. As frontman for Heroes del Silencio, Bunbury's diverse songwriting

skills and empassioned singing on their 1988 multiplatinum debut El Mar No Cesa to their final chart-topping studio outing Avalancha in 1995, their meld of folk traditions, punk, new wave, indie rock, and pop paved the way for countless artists. Bunbury emerged as a solo artist with Radical Sonora, delivering his passions, aspirations, loves, and failures through a wider range of sounds. He came across to Anglo audiences as a dead cross between Scott Walker, Joe Strummer, and Iggy Pop, an intense, questioning, mercurial artist who followed a labyrinthine musical path. He has gained legions of fans across Europe and the Americas. He crossed the pop chart pantheon with 2008's Hellville de Luxe, produced by Roxy Music's Phil Manzanera. It showcased Bunbury's passionate baritone in songs that melded Middle Eastern, cabaret, caballero, blues, flamenco, milonga, bolero, cumbia, electro, roots and garage rock, heavy metal, and electronic genres. After releasing his smash Las Consecuencias in 2010, Bunbury bought a house in Los Angeles where he lives half the time. 2015's MTV Unplugged: El Libro de Las Mutaciones featured appearances from Draco Rosa, Carla Morrison, Vetusta Morla, and Pepe Aguilar, and topped the international charts. For 2017's Expectativas, the singer took home his first solo Latin Grammy for Album of the Year.
