The new Miami based pop/opera group The Latin Divos makes their Southwest Florida debut Oct. 25 with Divos & Dinner, a Latin flavored evening at the Strand Club courtyard stage. Born and raised in Cuba, where music and arts vibrate on every corner, it’s no wonder that The Latin Divos (Ernesto, Fernando and Will) have quickly captured the attention and hearts of audiences around the world.
The group, based in Miami, was founded in 2017 by violinist, saxophonist and singer Will Corujo. They take Latin pop, traditional songs and opera hits and “Latinize” them, singing in Italian, English, Spanish and French.
The group has performed in prestigious theaters and venues around the USA and Latin America, individually performing in more than 25 countries. They have had the honor of sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in Latin music. Grammy Award winning composer and singer Alejandro Jaen asked The Latin Divos to participate on his latest album and went on to compose their first original single entitled “Hoy Podras Volar.” They just released their album “Forever Classics”, containing audience favorites like: Hallelujah, Caruso, O Sole Mio, Quizas Quizas and more to enjoy beautiful melodies from all times.
The Latin Divos return to spice up the new year with an evening concert at the Mercato lawn stage in Naples on Jan. 14.
