RUBEN BLADES: LA STORIA DEL ROCK

Figlio d’arte, sua madre è Anoland Bellido, cantante panamense. Quindi influenzato dalla musica centroamericana, non disdegna avvicinarsi alla musica pop. Inizia a New York con la collaborazione di Ray Barreto, poi con Willie Colon. Nei suoi primi brani, i testi sono impegnati politicamente contro il regime militari del suo paese, il Panama. All’inizio degli anni ottanta arrivano i primi successi con Agua de luns, brano scritto con i testi di Gabriel Garcia Marquez, e poi con delle cover di Sting, Lou Reed e Elvis Costello. Si dedica anche a colonne sonore e di attore come nel film Milagro di Robert Redford. Nel 1992 si dà alla politica formando un partito politico “ Papa Egoro” indirizzato alla giustizia sociale del suo paese. Nel 2002 pubblica l’albumMundo, forse uno dei più belli, con ritmi africani e musica latina.
