"Circo Soledad" by Ricardo Arjona on iTunes

14 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Ricardo Arjona won’t disappoint fans of his intense pop ballads on the eclectic Circo Soledad. Cinematic strings add drama to “Vivir,” the vocal harmonies sparkle on the stripped-down “Dime Tu,” and the swaying groove of “Sixto Perez” hits both the hips and the heart. Even at his roughest, the Guatemalan crooner can’t help being irresistibly smooth, whether he’s shaking up the sweet love song “Ella” with raw blues-rock riffs or indulging his love for raucous Tejano rhythms on the roadhouse-ready anthem “Porque Puedo.”

Mi poeta

nuchy santos,

Empece siendo parte de tu circo donde me creía tus trucos, hoy me divierten tus mentiras me asombra tu falsedad, me entretiene ver los malabares con que te inventas una y otra excusa, ver tu hipocresía caminar por la cuerda floja es admirable, jamás había visto tanta diversión en un solo payaso té robas el show que no paren los aplausos a tu acto de magia de ver cómo apareces un día y desapareces en otro, ya me se todos tus trucos hasta los más escondidos, a tu falsedad y mentira le compre un ticket para no perderme en primera fila tu siguiente show en un circo soledad. Con mucho cariño para mi poeta Ricardo Arjona @Nuchysantos

About Ricardo Arjona

Guatemalan singer/songwriter Ricardo Arjona is one of the more respected Latin artists, mostly for his social conscience and his integrity in writing and performing songs. Born in Antigua, he was interested in music from an early age but later decided to become a rural schoolteacher. He also played basketball for the Guatemalan national team, but continued to play guitar and write songs in his spare time. After realizing that music was vocation, he moved to Mexico City; once there, he began looking for a record contract and played at many student festivals.

Arjona finally found a contract through PolyGram, but the label attempted to market him as a Latin lover type on his debut album, Dejame Decir Que Te Amo (Let Me Say I Love You). Predictably, the album failed, and Arjona spent the next five years teaching and occasionally writing songs recorded by other artists. He moved to Buenos Aires, began playing again, and soon returned to the recording sphere with material more suited to his experiences as a protest singer, namely "Jesus Verbo No Sustantivo," a controversial song about his experiences at a Catholic school as a child. It gained him a contract with Sony, which released many of his most popular albums, including 1992's Animal Nocturno. His next two albums, 1994's Historias and 1996's Si el Norte Fuera el Sur, were not only popular but critics' favorites as well.

Galería Caribe, which appeared in 2000, became Arjona's first number one album on the Top Latin Albums chart, and 2002's Santo Pecado won him a Latin Grammy Award. Adentro, released in late 2005, was a landmark in Arjona's catalog; it marked the first of several contributions by Puerto Rican producer and songwriter Tommy Torres, and won Arjona another Latin Grammy. 5to Piso followed in 2008, bolstered by the help of Torres plus a massive hit single in "Como Duele." Poquita Ropa arrived two years later, in 2010, with Arjona adopting more of a stripped-down approach. Released in 2011, Independiente featured a poppier sound and style that made the album a success, and the lead single "El Amor" a big hit. In typical fashion, Arjona switched gears again for 2014's Viaje, a singer/songwriter album through and through, driven by life on the road and depression brought on by the death of his mother. ~ John Bush
