Juanes Family, Academic, and Marital Background
Juanes’ was born on the 9th of August, 1972 in Carolina del Principe, Antioquia, Columbia. Having a father and brother who were instrumentalists, Joanes knew how to play the keyboard from age seven.
There is really no record of his mother and his academics because of the time in which Juanes grew up. It was indeed a rough period in Medellin because it was during the reign of drug lord Pablo Escobar (when drug deals were on the increase).
It was at this time that the city had its highest homicide record so far. He also witnessed a civil war at the time of his childhood. Hundreds of the citizens lost their lives in the war, he lost his best friend, and one of his cousins to kidnappers who later killed him.
As Juanes was still grieving the death of his cousin and his friend, his dad who had been diagnosed with cancer died too. It was such a great loss for Juanes that he took solace and comforted himself through music, and eventually went fully into music.
All through his musical journey, Juanes has sung with the following bands; Ekhymosis, Agony, Pico Rivera, CA, United States, Miami, FL, United States, La Camisa Negra, A Dios le Pido, Para Tu Amor
Juanes later got married to actress and model Karen Martinez in 2004. The two met during the shooting of his Podemos Hacernos Dano music video. They separated in 2007 but got back together eventually. The couple has three children in persons of Luna, Paloma, and Dante.
Juanes acquired a 7000 square-foot mansion in Key Biscayne Florida for 2.36 million dollars. Having bought the mansion in 2004, Juanes’ home is currently estimated to be worth between 10 to 12 million dollars.
Being a very outspoken person, Juanes is an advocate for peace and equality in Columbia. He started the Mi Sangre Foundation which was with the aim of helping victims of anti-personnel mines. He also became a Goodwill Ambassador for the non-profit organization United for Columbia.
Juanes made an awareness of the dangers of using landmines around the world during his performance at the European Parliament in 2006. He further held a concert beneficiary to children who were mine injury victims.
By way of gratitude towards Juanes’ great gestures towards people, a recreational park in Medellin which was initially designed for the handicapped was named after him. He continuously held peace concerts in Havana, Cuba.
