Cuban troubadour Pedro Luis Ferrer makes his debut with 1999's self-titled album. One of the leaders in the guaracha musical style, Ferrer's music blends classical and pop idioms and features reflective lyrics about the modern Cuban condition. Songs like "La Tarde Se Ha Puesto Triste" and "No Me Voy a Defender" reflect his emotional, political style. ~ Heather Phares
