Rubén Blades has written dozens of hit songs, including “Pedro Navaja” and “El Cantante” (which became Héctor Lavoe’s signature song). He has won ten Grammy Awards out of seventeen nominations and twelve Latin Grammy Awards.
He is an icon in Panama and is much admired throughout Latin America and Spain, and managed to attract 17% of the vote in his failed attempt to win the Panamanian presidency in 1994.

Hire Ruben Blades to entertain your friends and colleagues!
A former member of bands led by Ray Baretto and Willie Colón, Blades has continued to influence salsa music with his highly literate, politically tinged lyrics and his modern-minded arrangements, which substitute the usual horn and Latin percussion sections with synthesizers and drum sets. Often referred to as “the Latin Bruce Springsteen,” Blades provided a musical voice for the middle class of Central America.
In 2021, Rubén Blades was honored as the Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year for his contributions to Latin music and activism.

(i.e., what is RUBÉN BLADES booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for RUBÉN BLADES, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
