New Ruben Blades CD, “Son De Panama,” Plays Homage To The Singer’s Homeland
In conjunction with the premiere of his eagerly anticipated new AMC television series “Fear The Walking Dead,” Ruben Blades has self-released a brand new CD, “Son De Panama,” available now via iTunes and Amazon.Â The new CD is an homage to Blades’ beloved homeland of Panama and features the singer on 13 tracks backed by members of the Panama-based Robert Delgado Orchestra.
“Son De PanamaÂ is a reflection of my eternal gratitude for being Panamanian and how pleased I am to declare it publicly, once again,” said Blades. “Those of us who have worked on this album believe in our country and in our individual and collective ability. The product we’re presenting to the public has a seal that is imprinted with that trust and is the result of discipline and professional dedication, fundamental elements that allow you to compete in a successful way and obtain the public’s support and recognition, locally and internationally, while addressing issues that are universal such as domestic violence, politics, corruption and poverty.”
“Son De Panama” was recorded in Panama earlier this year and everyone involved with the making of the project is Panamanian.
“Fear The Walking Dead,” Blades’ new television series on AMC in which he plays reoccurring character Daniel Salazar, premiered on August 23rd.Â A companion series to the hugely successful “The Walking Dead,” the new Zombie-thriller drama takes places in present-day Los Angeles and is one of the most talked-about television premieres of the 2015 Fall season.
