Biography

Marco Antonio Muñiz (born March 3, 1933) is a famous singer from Jalisco, Mexico. Known all over Latin America, Muniz actually has declared publicly and in most countries he has visited, that Puerto Rico is his second country, and many Puerto Ricans consider him to be an “honorary Puerto Rican”. A few Puerto Rican song standards (such as the danza “Alondras en el bosque”) have Muñiz as their definitive interpreter.

Muniz was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco. Since he was a small boy, he showed musical talent, specifically as a romantic singer. He joined a trio and moved to Ciudad Juarez at age thirteen. He traveled extensively around Mexico, combining his singing assignments with odd jobs (he worked at a bakery once) and even became the valet for Libertad Lamarque and Benny Moré until he settled in Mexico City and organized a trio.

Muniz’s first album was a tribute to singers of other eras. It was titled “Aquellas Canciones!” (“Those (old) Songs!”), and it was released in 1946. That was the first of close to 80 albums, all of which he recorded under the BMG or RCA Internacional labels.

During the 1960s, Muniz recorded his first solo albums, which became hits all over Latin America. He eventually moved back to Guadalajara, where he still lives.

In 1965, he began an uninterrupted streak of years traveling to Puerto Rico’s Caribe Hilton Hotel in San Juan around Christmas
