CORAZÓN, both the concert and album project, brings Carlos back to his birthplace, in the city of Autlan, just south of Guadalajara and celebrates Carlos' love of his musical heritage, as well as showcases Carlos' own personal influence on Latin music and on today's generation of Latin superstars. Many genres of Latin music are represented in these collaborations including pop, rock, salsa, hip-hop, folk, reggae, traditional and bachata.
