Ricardo Arjona

Age Requirement:
Ages 5 and up. Ages 5-17 must be accompanied by an adult.

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 originally decided to become a rural schoolteacher but moved into basketball.  He played for the Guatemalan national team, but continued to play his guitar and write songs in his spare time. After realizing that music was his one true love, he moved to Mexico City; once there, he began looking for a record contract and played at many student festivals, increasing his status as a protest singer.

He moved to Buenos Aires 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 Animal Nocturno. Adentro, released in late 2005, was nominated for a 2006 Grammy in the Latin Pop Album category. His latest venture, an independent label which he has personally released music on, has been a smash success and boasts performers like Guatemalan singer Gaby Moreno and the Cuban duo Good Faith.
