About The Latin Divos
Take three gorgeous guys. Add great voices, tremendous musicianship and terrific chemistry. Stir in a pinch of Latin flair and mix well: You have the Latin Divos! Founded in 2017 by violinist and saxophonist Will Corujo, the three young Cuban musicians of the Latin Divos were immersed in the arts, music and culture from an island where there is music on every corner. Joining Will Corujo are tenor Ernesto Cabrera and bass Fernando Gonzalez, who as the Latin Divos take Latin pop, traditional opera and timeless classics and “Divo-ize” them with a Latin sound. That sound includes Fernando’s deep, timeless baritone, Ernesto’s wit, humor and smile and Will’s amazing musicianship.
These bravura performers are bringing a new twist to the classical crossover genre and gaining worldwide recognition for their exciting concerts, which feature the group's extraordinary vocal and musical skills. A talented group of multi-linguists, the Latin Divos sing in Italian, English, Spanish and French and have performed in venues and theaters in the United States, Spain, Mexico Cuba, and Panama.
They have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in Latin music, including Meme Solis, Alvaro Torres and Alejandro Jaen. Jaen, a composer, singer and member of the Latin Songwriters’ Hall of Fame, asked the group to participate on his latest album and composed their first original single, “Hoy Podras Volar.”
