“Los Bandoleros” is a compilation album and the first from Don Omar’s new record label, All Star Records. Don Omar produced the album and also appears on several of the tracks. The album features artists including Tego Calderon, Nicky Jam, Wiso G and Ivy Queen. The many artists who participated illustrate the growing popularity of the reggaeton genre and the diversity of Latin music.

Dedicated to nurturing this diversity, Tower Records’ Executive Vice President of Retail Stores, Kevin Cassidy, states, “Tower Records is a strong supporter of Latin Music and the Hispanic community. We are thrilled to have Don Omar at our flagship store and we will continue to provide our customers with the best Latin Music CDs, Cine Latino DVDs and exciting in-store events.”

By providing a unique opportunity where fans can meet artists such as Don Omar, Tower Records further demonstrates its commitment to the Hispanic community. Tower’s Lincoln Center location will host Don Omar as he signs copies of his albums for fans this Friday. In a recent event, hundreds of fans attended the April in-store appearance by Aventura at Tower’s Village location earlier this year. Don Omar is sure to attract an equally enthusiastic crowd of fans who follow his music career.

Before releasing “The Last Don” in 2003, Don Omar participated in more than 20 rap albums by various artists. His first solo production sold over 250,000 copies and garnered nominations for Billboard Latin Music’s Latin Pop Album of the Year, New Artist and Latin Rap/Hip Hop Album of the Year Awards. Don Omar recently won the award for Premio Lo Nuestro’s Best Urban Male Artist in 2005.
