With 55 gold and 40 platinum records under his belt, veteran Spanish singer-songwriter Dyango (born José Gómez Romero on March 5, 1940 in Barcelona, Spain) is famed for his rich, romantic voice and popularity across Latin America. Nicknamed "The Voice of Love," and taking his stage name inspiration from gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, Romero studied at Barcelona's Conservatory of Music and issued his debut album, Dyango, in 1969. The following year, he traveled to Argentina, making a name for himself in Latin America for starring alongside Ginamaría Hidalgo in the 1970 film El Mundo es de Los Jóvenes, and publishing an album of the same name. In 1974, Romeo signed his first recording contract – with EMI's Latin division – and released his major-label debut, Alma, Corazón y Vida, in 1975. He built up a vast discography during the 1980s and 1990s, with notable releases including 1984's Bienvendo Al Club, 1985's Al Fin Solos and 1989's Suspiros. Romero's 2010 album with the Prague Symphony Orchestra, Puñaladas En El Alma (with arrangements by maestro Carlos Franzetti) was nominated for a Latin Grammy in 2010. His recorded music autobiography, El Cantante, was unveiled in 2013. Romero retired from music in 2017 due to health concerns.
