Manzanero was born in the city of Merida, capital of Yucatan, Mexico, the birthplace of many songwriters and troubadours. Son of one of the founders of the typical orchestra Yucalpetén, Manzanero was close to music from a very early age.
Long way from there to the living legend, the songwriter, record producer from Grammy Award winners, he is well considered as one of the leading exponents of Latin music and modern bolero, Manzanero is the essence, the same composer and author at the piano, his voice, gently whispers the lyrics of his songs, so intimate that anyone who hears them can sometimes imagine that they were written specially for them.
"The best languages for love are songs" said Armando Manzanero. Not surprisingly, to date he has written over 400 songs, 50 of which have gained international fame.
In addition, his songs translated or not, have been performed by voices like those of Eddie Gorme, Johnny Mathis, Paul Muriat, Tony Bennet, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Ellis Regina, Andrea Bochelli, Luis Miguel, Il Divo and Placido Domingo.
