The U.S. music industry has saturated the market and have established their names in the international scene. Also, musicians combined in the US are worth billions of dollars. But how is the music industry doing outside the United States of America? Let us check out how our Latino friends are doing and let’s see how much money they are making.


Legends of Latin Music

Latino musicians have created a database of their fans all over the world. Carlos Santana is one of the best Latino guitarists and songwriter of all time and was recognized by the Rolling Stone as one of the greatest guitarists in the world. A lot of people may mistake Carlos Satana as American-born, but he was born in Jalisco, Mexico and grew up in San Francisco, California. Santana believed that fame and money are not good reasons to make music, it is the passion and doing what you love to do.

Grammy Awards

He may not think that it’s the money, but thanks to his 54-year long career. His net worth is now $50 million. Along with his ten Grammy Awards, he has put the name of Latin musicians on the map because of their talent. Carlos Santana is now 72 years old, but the guitarist shows no signs of stopping. He still performs up to this day mostly in casinos in Las Vegas. Casinos all over the world love Latin music because it’s pleasant to the ears.

Another Latina singer

Another Latina singer hailing from The Land of Happiness and everybody surely loves is Shakira. Who doesn’t love Waka waka eh, eh? Born as Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, from Barranquilla, Colombia. Eventually moved to Barcelona, Spain, The Bahamas, and Miami, Florida. She truly deserves the blessed and lavish lifestyle that she has now. It is reported that she has several high-end mansions. Shakira also has collections of Mercedes Benz Cars. A collection that only the rich and famous could afford. Yet, the most fulfilling part of her life is the organizations that she has established, the charities she supported and fund-raisers she organized to help her home country of Colombia.



Shakira doesn’t mind spending from her $300 Million net worth if it’s for a good cause. That’s why everybody loves Shakira, for she truly has a golden heart. Shakira wouldn’t have been a singer, dancer, songwriter, philanthropist, and businesswoman that she is now, without the struggles that she has gone through in the early part of her career. She is forever grateful to the people who believed in her and the record label that made her dreams come true.

Latin Musicians

Latin Musicians such as Carlos Santana and Shakira would have never made it big in the American music industry. They both had their humble beginnings in record label companies that support Latin music. Struggling Latin musicians only need record labels to believe in the talents they have. Just like a record label based in Amsterdam called Cantinela Records to support Latin Artists all over the globe. Shout out to Latin musicians all over the world, never give up your dreams and believe that your talent will bring you wealth and luck in life. Someday, you might be the next Shakira or Carlos Santana and have your own luxury car collection. Or you’ll reach that level of wealth that you won’t know how to spend your money.
