Rubén Blades Bellido de Luna (born July 16, 1948), professionally known as Rubén Blades in Panama and within the family, is a Panamanian salsa singer, songwriter, actor, Latin jazz musician, and activist, performing musically most often in the Afro-Cuban and Latin jazz genres.

As songwriter, Blades brought the lyrical sophistication of Central American nueva canción and Cuban Nueva Trova as well as experimental tempos and politically inspired Nuyorican salsa to his music, creating thinking persons’ (salsa) dance music.

Blades has composed dozens of musical hits, the most famous of which is “Pedro Navaja,” a song about a neighborhood thug who is killed by a very attractive street walker he actually knows, he tried to kill her, she shot him, and they both die, a bum finds them, and takes his belongings, (his song “Sorpresas” continues the story), inspired by “Mack the Knife.” He also composed and sings “Patria” (Motherland), which many Panamanians consider their second national anthem.

He has won 7 Grammy and 5 Latin Grammy Awards.

He is an icon in Panama and is much admired throughout Latin America and Spain, and managed to attract 18% of the vote in his failed attempt to win the Panamanian presidency in 1994. In September 2004, he was appointed minister of tourism by Panamanian president Martín Torrijos for a five-year term. He holds a Licenciado en Derecho law degree from the University of Panama and an LL.M in International Law from Harvard University. He is married to singer Luba Mason.

WALT DISNEY CREATED A CHARACTER … DONALD DUCK

This is a very intense piece of writing. It’s to the point and concise. Rubén makes an analogy between the fictional Disney character Donald Duck and D. Trump.

I would suggest that, if you are interested in reading these incredibly interesting and inspiring words describing the analogy to Disney’s Donald Duck, that you copy and paste. Transport to Google Translator and you will be able to review Rubén’s point of view.

SPANISH VERSION

“Walt Disney creó, hace ya muchas décadas, un personaje que inicialmente despertó mas antipatías que afectos: El Pato Donald. Su principal característica era su carácter iracundo. Cuando las cosas no eran del agrado de Donald, explotaba en un paroxismo de gritos y se expresaba utilizando un idioma que la gente normal no atinaba a comprender.

El Pato Donald me recuerda, mas allá de la coincidencia de nombre, a Donald Trump, el pre-candidato republicano a la nominación por la presidencia de los Estados Unidos de América. Existe una sola diferencia entre Donald Trump y el Pato Donald: el Pato Donald nunca ha usado pantalones.

El Donald humano se jacta de tenerlos, y bien amarrados, y como prueba de ello despotrica a diestra y siniestra contra cualquiera que tenga la osadía de contradecir sus opiniones, que son solo eso, opiniones y no programas de gobierno o propuestas concretas dirigidas a enfrentar responsablemente las complejidades que plantea la responsabilidad de la administración pública.

En esto tengo cierto conocimiento, pues he llegado a ser candidato a presidente en Panamá, participando en un torneo electoral nacional, además de haber servido cinco años en un puesto público, expuesto al examen de tirios y troyanos. Considero que esa experiencia me proporciona la autoridad suficiente para opinar objetivamente acerca de lo que dice Mr. Trump, un fanfarrón con mucho dinero y un ego superior al producto interno bruto de su país.

Su última payasada fue expulsar al periodista Jorge Ramos de uno de sus soliloquios “a la Donald” que hábilmente disfraza como ruedas de prensa. Igual que su homónimo, el Pato, Mr. Trump reaccionó expulsando a Jorge de su reino, pues se sentía incomodado por sus preguntas y, por supuesto, por su condición de miembro del equipo de Univisión, grupo mediático que fue uno de los primeros en reaccionar públicamente a sus insultos racistas. Aunque algunos opinan que el periodista fue quien provoco el incidente por no esperar su turno, o por un simple deseo de protagonismo, considero que su acción fue diriigida a presionar a que el Sr. Trump enfrentara su propio método de “bullying“. O sea, recibió una dosis de su propia medicina y reaccionó con su habitual arrogancia.

ABird

Poco después le permitió a Jorge Ramos regresar, como si le concediera un salvoconducto, una dispensa para que pudiera hacer su trabajo, Eso, desde luego, en nada altera la fea imagen que Mr. Trump representa como político.

Hoy, Estados Unidos tiene un presidente que luce como uno de los más inteligentes y bien intencionados que hayan existido en los últimos cuarenta años. Y vale la pena señalar que muchos de los planes de Obama, lo que deseaba hacer o intentó crear, ha sido destruido por el Partido Republicano representado por voceros como el Sr. Trump. No creo que estos obstáculos hayan sido producto solamente del racismo, que de hecho existe no solo en Estados Unidos si no también en América Latina. Esto es algo a lo que todos debemos poner atención.

Lo que ha obstruido los planes del presidente Barak Obama, es la oposición de ciertos sectores a que se realicen los cambios necesarios para crear una mejor y más justa sociedad. Así como Mr. Trump es un escalofrío en busca de un cuerpo, la gente que lo apoya, un segmento que aumenta cada semana después que exhibe su soberbia, nos debe causar mayor temor aún.

La verdad es que en Estados Unidos la lucha, por no llamarla guerra todavía, no es solo por dinero, si no también por ideas. Lo que se está discutiendo, solapadamente, es el tipo de sociedad que va a existir en ese país de aquí a veinte años. Con su actitud, con sus generalizaciones, con un paternalismo que pretende brindar una imagen de solidaridad, con su beligerante intolerancia, Trump representa a lo peor que existe en el noble país del Norte. Y aclaro que no son solo estadounidenses los que apoyan sus estupideces. También lo respaldan latinos, o descendientes de latinos, que hipnotizados por el éxito material de Donald, caen en el engaño en el que también cayó la gente que eligió en Panamá a un candidato millonario: que “los ricos no necesitan robar”.

Sin ánimo de insultar a nadie, ese argumento es absurdo. La gente roba porque esa es su disposición, porque está en su carácter y porque lo que tienen nunca les parecerá suficiente. Esta es la principal característica de la codicia, no posee límite. Bernie Madoff, preso por la más grande estafa piramidal (Ponzi) jamás realizada en los Estados Unidos, administraba billones de dólares pero siguió hurtando, destruyendo el futuro de miles de personas, y de paso a su familia y a él mismo.

Criticar a Trump es como pegarle a un borracho por hablar idioteces. Simplemente no le demos la credibilidad que busca. Me parece que esta satisfaciendo su ego con lo que hace. No lo veo realmente dedicado a ser un candidato serio y creo que cuando se acerque la hora crucial de transformar su alharaca y sus vagas generalidades en argumentos concisos y serios, se retirará de la campaña por incompetente. Seguro culpará a terceros, pero no llegará a la otra orilla. Entre tanto, se divierte y recoge la fama que su complejo necesita, y que lo hace creer que lo que dice o hace, importa.

Más escalofriante que él mismo, es descubrir cuánta gente encuentra en su postura el sustento de sus esperanzas, sin darse cuenta de que esto equivale a esperar del Pato Donald un diálogo pausado, racional y productivo.

Donald Duck fue creado para provocarnos risa. El otro Donald, tal como lo veo, está programado para causar daño.

Y eso si que no es cosa de risa.

At the end of the day …. Happy birthday, Kitaro!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Kitarō (born February 4, 1953) is a Japanese recording artist, composer, record producer and arranger who is regarded as a pioneer of New Age music. He is the winner of a Grammy Award and a Golden Globe Award.

~Early life: 1954–1976~

Kitaro was born in Toyohashi, Aichi, Japan, and is a graduate of Sahid University. After graduating, Kitaro moved to Tokyo to experience and become a part of the music scene, and it was there that he discovered the synthesizer. His first synthesizer was analog, and he recalls having “just loved the analog sound that it made compared to today’s digital sound”.

NewA

His parents were first opposed to the idea of their son having a musical career. In an effort to maneuver him towards their vision, they made arrangements for him to take a job at a local company. In return, he left home without telling them. He supported himself by taking on several part-time jobs such as cooking and civil service work, while composing songs at night.

In the early 1970s, he changed completely to keyboards. He joined the Japanese music group Far East Family Band which was formed in 1965, and toured with them around the world. While in Europe, he met the German electronica and former Tangerine Dream member Klaus Schulze. Schulze produced two albums for the band and gave Kitaro some tips for controlling synthesizers. In 1976, Kitaro left Far East Family Band and travelled through Asia (China, Laos, Thailand, India).

~1994 – present~

Dom

~Domo Records~

Since his 1994 debut for Domo Records, the Grammy-nominated Mandala, Kitaro has released twelve studio albums. Among them, the live An Enchanted Evening (1995), Gaia-Onbashira (1998), and Ancient (2001) were all Grammy nominated. In 1999, Thinking of You won the Grammy for Best New Age Album. In total, Kitaro’s albums with Domo Records have received 15 Grammy nominations.

~Sacred Journey of Ku-Kai series~

Kitaro’s music has long been recognized for its messages of peace and spirituality. In the wake of 9/11, the artist began recording Sacred Journey of Ku-Kai, a series of peace-themed albums inspired by the Shikoku Henro Pilgrimage, the travel of Kūkai more than 1100 years ago. The four volumes in the album series were released in 2003, 2005, 2007, and 2011, respectively. The event of September 11 occurred while he was en route from Japan to Los Angeles. Kitaro’s flight was diverted to Honolulu for five days, during which time the conceptual endeavor, which he envisioned as an artistic means to help unify people globally, first took shape. Every track on the 4 volumes of Sacred Journey Of Ku-Kai contains samples from ancient Japanese temple bells (Peace Bells) from 88 sacred temples on the island of Shikoku, Japan.

~Impressions of the West Lake~

In 2007, Kitaro composed the music for Impression West Lake, a large-scale opera, directed by the renowned Chinese film director Zhang Yimou. The opera reflects Hangzhou city’s history and culture through music and dance. Using modern technology, the stage is 75 centimeters below the lake’s surface during the day so as not to affect the landscape and boating activities. In the evening, the stage is a few centimeters below the lake’s surface so actors can walk and perform freely over a surprising water mirror that compose with the lights and colors. The one-hour event had its opening night in March 2007.[10] In 2009, Domo Records released the original soundtrack album Impressions of the West Lake which was nominated for the 2010 Grammy Awards.

~Touring and other activities~

In 2007 to 2009 he launched the ‘Love and Peace World Tour,’ an international tour with which Kitaro hoped to inspire his message of world peace with his music. Kitaro toured Southeast Asia in 2007, Greece in 2008 and Hong Kong, Japan, Southeast Asia in 2009. During his visit to Greece, Kitaro met Greek musician and composer Vangelis, and exchanged musical experience and creative ideas.

In 2010, Kitaro performed in Singapore in March, in Mexico for the Zacatecas Cultural Festival in April, in Xi’an, China for the opening event of Daming Palace National Heritage Park in September, in Aichi, Japan for the Thousand Drums Event at COP10 for the Convention on Biological Diversity in October. From March to April, 2011, Kitaro toured Thailand, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia. He donated part of the CD sales and concert profits to Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami Relief.

While Kitaro has been touring, Domo Records released Kitaro’s compilation Album, soundtracks to Toyo’s Camera and 442 – Live With Honor, Die With Dignity, as well as the Grammy nominated Sacred Journey Of Ku-Kai, Volume 4.
