In his new musical production, entitled “Negro”, Ricardo Arjona reinvents himself in a sound from the 60s, recovering the essence of music as the main protagonist and, in his own words, “making an album that has everything that is not of fashion”.
From the new album, the Guatemalan singer-songwriter Ricardo Arjona published the first single: “Yo me vi (Self-portrait)” and which they will follow one a week every Friday until completing the full album list.
“Negro” is linked in the singer-songwriter’s career to “Blanco”, which was also recorded at the emblematic Abbey Road studios in London, and to “Made in Old Fashioned” which with three million spectators became the most streaming concert. seen in the history of Ibero-America.
Before his tour of the United States, Arjona will publish the book “Blanco y Negro” on December 3, which includes all this project.
The “Blanco y Negro” concerts will take the multi-award-winning artist, 57, to the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada between March 24 and June 11, 2022.
In a statement, the company Loud and Live, which produces this new tour, highlighted that more than a million and a half people witnessed Arjona’s previous tour, “Circo Soledad” live.
Nelson Albareda, CEO and founder of Loud and Live, stated that the term “legendary” suits Ricardo Arjona. ”From his iconic lyrics to his distinctive voice, this true Renaissance man has transcended the borders of his native Guatemala to become a universal icon of music, “he added.
