JOAN SEBASTIAN
Joan Sebastian is one of Mexico’s biggest music stars, a multi-Latin Grammy award winner and a top-grossing live performer, almost mythical in stature. But writing songs that touch the people he loves is still his greatest passion. Known as both “The People’s Poet” and “The King of Jaripeo,” the singer/songwriter has been writing and arranging songs since he was a teenager, and has racked up hits from the 1970s to the present. As a performer, he’s one of Mexico’s top-grossing acts, regularly selling out venues on both sides of the border. As a songwriter, his compositions have been covered by a pantheon of Mexican stars, including Alejandro Fernandez, Rocio Durcal, Luis Miguel, Vicente Fernández and more. As an artist, he’s been showered with awards, including multiple           gold and platinum records and the ASCAP Silver Pen award. 

PEPE AGUILAR
With more than 12 million records sold, 23 albums and 7 GRAMMYs ® under his belt, multi-platinum singer-songwriter Pepe Aguilar is an impressive master of fusion whose proven capacity to inspire audiences with his music and talent has no boundaries. Aside from his exceptional voice, Pepe Aguilar is a respected composer and producer who has worked with some of the big names in the Latin music world. The son of Mexican recording legends Antonio Aguilar and Flor Silvestre, Pepe was influenced and supported by his parents to start singing as a young boy, making his debut at the age of three when his parents handed him a microphone during a concert at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Last summer, Pepe Aguilar was selected to receive his star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

* Jaripeo is a form of bull riding practiced in Mexico that developed in the 16th century. The modern form in the charreada called Jineteo de Toro. It requires the rider to stay on the bull as long as possible, preferably until the bull tires and stops bucking. This differs from the sport of bull riding seen in the United States, where riders are scored on the quality of their ride for a limited time period, usually eight seconds.
