Con más de medio siglo de música que dictada por la cultura y 17 Grammys, Rubén Blades merece más que su lugar como un artista musical Latinoamericano crucial de nuestros tiempos. El "Bob Dylan de la salsa", Blades trajo su música a una audiencia internacional, junto a su tajante poder de denuncia en la letra de su composición. Mientras lo seguimos en su última gira, descubrimos a una leyenda viviente sin ninguna intención de parar. Cantante, compositor, activista, actor, humanitario, político, y candidato presidencial - Rubén Blades es todas estas cosas y más.

 

With over half a century of culture-defining music and 17 Grammys, Rubén Blades has more than earned his status as one of the definitive Latin American musical artists of our time. The "Bob Dylan of salsa," Blades brought this music to an international audience, paired perfectly with his incisive and socially charged lyrics. As we follow him on his final tour, we discover a living legend with no intention of stopping. Singer, songwriter, activist, actor, humanitarian, politics, and presidential candidate—Rubén Blades is all of these things and more.
