Pedro Manuel Guerra Mansito (2 June 1966 in GÃ¼Ãmar, Teneriffe) is a singer-songwriter from the Spanish Canary Islands.
Guerra is the son of Pedro Guerra Cabrera, the first President of the Canarian parliament. He began studying the guitar at the Conservatorio Superior de MÃºsica de Tenerife.
At the age of 16 he started to perform regularly throughout Tenerife. At 18 he moved to the university city San CristÃ³bal de La Laguna, where he met fellow singer-songwriters AndrÃ©s Molina, Rogelio Botanz, and Marisa Delgado, with whom he formed Taller Canario de CanciÃ³n in 1985. Marisa left the group the following year.
Pedro Guerras' style is based on Canarian folk music, as well as contemporary popular music, Latin American, and North African music.
In 1993 he moved to Madrid and embarked upon a solo career. As a musician and composer he worked together with Ana BelÃ©n, VÃctor Manuel, JoaquÃn Sabina, Javier Ãlvarez, Paloma San Basilio, Amistades Peligrosas and the group CÃ³mplices.
