Spaniard Juan Perro (born Santiago Auserón) started his solo career after his first pop/rock band Radio Futura disbanded in 1992.
That same year the Spanish singer/songwriter released a compilation called Semilla del Son based on his own research on Afro-Cuban music. A year later Santiago Auserón started touring Spain as Juan Perro. His first album was recorded in La Havana, Cuba and titled Raíces del Viento. In addition, he founded the NSL (Nueva Sociedad Lírica) to produce and promote records by emerging Latin artists. ~ Drago Bonacich, Rovi
