JUAN GABRIEL

He hailed from Mexico.

He wasn’t a rapist, he wasn’t a murdered, he wasn’t a drug dealer.

He was a unique human being who shared with this public an amazing talent.

He had an incredible source of inspiration.

He wrote songs for many other fellow artists and shared with his public amazing works of art.

He was a superstar Mexican songwriter and singer who was an icon in the Latin music world.

His music influenced the lives of many fans and marked the career of many fellow musicians.

He will be sorely missed.

His music will live eternally on.

Sad today!

Juan Gabriel, 66, was a man of grand ­performances, gestures and especially songs — including eight No. 1s on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart. His fans have devoured his music for more than four decades.

He spanned the whole Latin world: Mexico, his country, Latin and South America, Puerto Rico, Santo Domingo, Spain.

Where Latin people live, Juan Gabriel was part of their lives.

“Juan Gabriel is our Elvis,” declares Juanes, the Colombian star who recorded the hit “Querida” with the singer in 2015.

~~Juan Gabriel Dies at 66~~

Born Alberto Aguilera Valadez, the son of a farmer, in Parácuaro, Mexico, about 165 miles west of Mexico City, Gabriel is a courtly gentleman, the single father of four adult children. Yet he transforms onstage into a master of melodrama (his nickname is “The Divo From Juárez“) and is known to bring both men and women to tears during his two-and-a-half-hour concerts.

On Aug. 19, Gabriel launched another arena tour of the United States: the 21st century-themed MeXXIco Es Todos (Mexico Is All of Us), which will play nearly 30 cities in a 360-degree stage ­format. The show will include 50 ­mariachi and ­orchestra players, 10 singers and 20 ­dancers.

This fall, Telemundo will ­premiere Hasta Que Te Conocí (Until I Met You), a TV series ­chronicling his rise that is named after his 1968 hit song.

Mourn

Juan Gabriel, a superstar Mexican songwriter and singer who was an icon in the Latin music world, died Sunday at his home in California at age 66, his publicist said.

Juan Gabriel was Mexico’s leading singer-songwriter and top-selling artist. His ballads about love and heartbreak and bouncy mariachi tunes became hymns throughout Latin America and Spain and with Spanish speakers in the United States.

He brought many adoring fans to tears as they sang along when he crooned his songs about love and heartbreak, including his top hits, “Hasta Que Te Conoci” (“Until I Met You”) and “Amor Eterno” (“Eternal Love”). His hit “Querida” (“Dear”) topped Mexico’s charts for a whole year.

A flamboyant performer, Juan Gabriel, whose real name was Alberto Aguilera Valadez, liked to wear jackets covered in sequins or dress in shiny silk outfits in hot pink, turquoise blue or canary yellow, and he was known for tossing his head before dancing or jumping around the stage.

“He has passed on to become part of eternity and has left us his legacy through Juan Gabriel, the character created by him for all the music that has been sung and performed all around the world,” his press office said in a statement.

“YO TE RECUERDO”

Juan Gabriel & Marc Anthony

On hump day, after a couple of margaritas at a local joint, this is what I want to listen to.

Brings all my heritage and my “insides’ to the forefront.

There’s the Latin in me.

It will never leave me.

That’s who I am, that’s what I’m proud to be, that’s within me.

The Latin blood runs through my veins.

And proud o f it … to no end!

Watch Artists Hug It Out In New Music Video

Juan Gabriel presents his most recent music video “Yo Te Recuerdo” featuring Marc Anthony. The single, which was released on December 2015, now counts with a nearly 4-minute long video featuring both El Divo de Juarez and the Puerto Rican salsa singer. With Anthony jumping on board, the 2003 record from Juanga’s “Inocente de Ti” album has a fresh salsa twist, ready for some dancing!

The video was released Tuesday morning on the iconic Mexican singer’s YouTube channel. However, it is expected to make its exclusive debut Tuesday afternoon on Telemundo’s “Al Rojo Vivo,” with encore presentations on “Un Nuevo Día,” “Suelta la Sopa,” “Acceso Total,” “Titulares y Más” and NBC Universo.

 “Yo Te Recuerdo” is part of Gabriel’s recent studio album, “Los Dúo 2,” a production that features 16 tracks –ll of which are Juanga’s all-time classics!

After collaborating with artists such as Fifth Harmony, Juanes and Natalia Lafourcade in the first “Los Dúo” album released early 2015, the “Te Sigo Amando” singer unleashed a second part featuring brand new collabs.

TRAIDORA

It’s a new week, it’s a new month.

Weekend’s over.

We can still try to carry over the fun that we had during the weekend.

The best way to get started is with music.

Here’s a new catchy tune by Marc Anthony and Gente de Zona:

TRAIDORA

HortyRex©

GoldSwirl

Gente de Zona (sometimes stylized as Gente D’ Zona) is a Cuban reggaeton (cubaton) group founded by Alexander Delgado in 2000. The group combines reggaeton rhythms with more traditional forms of Cuban music.

Alexander then met Michel Delgado, “El Karo,” and both started playing at parties and official playrooms Guanabacoa, Regla and especially Alamar. The group quickly earned the support of the public in those areas, and soon started participating in international festivals.

Gente de Zona found its first international success following their collaboration with Enrique Iglesias on his 2014 release “Bailando“. The track was awarded three Latin Grammy awards and received widespread international airplay.

“Traidora” came out Friday, January 22

By: CARLOS ESCOBAR

Cuban duo Gente de Zona and Marc Anthony can make really beautiful music together. Literally. Earlier this year, the Cuban duo paired up with the superstar singer for the energetic “La Gozadera,” a mix of reggaetón and Cuban beats with a thumping bass that climbed to No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart.

Now the three want to do it all over again.

On Friday, January 22, Gente de Zona released “Traidora” (Traitor), the new single from their upcoming U.S. debut, Visualízate, out this Spring on Sony Music Latin.

The song, which Billboard was able to listen to exclusively, is more tropical than reggaetón and manages to be rhythmic and lyrical at the same time. Starting with an evocative piano intro, it leads into Anthony’s melancholy vocals (“I know I lost you,” he sings, sentiment overflowing), then gets down to the grit of business with Gente de Zona’s chorus of “Traidora,” over an increasingly present bass.

Tra13

Why another Marc Anthony duet?

Gente de Zona’s Alexander Delgado is the first to say they’re not just a collab act, despite the fact that they’ve yet to chart alone (past chart-hitting collabs include “Tu me quemas” with Chino y Nacho and “Piensas” with Pitbull).

“We want people to see us not as a band that does collaborations, but as a standalone group,” he said.

“Unfortunately,” he added with a laugh, “Our next single is with Marc.”

But it is for Gente de Zona’s album. With a bonus.

Gente de Zona is managed by Marc Anthony’s new entertainment company, Magnus.

ANOTHER PARTY IN HAVANA

Marc Anthony and GDZ ‘La Gozadera’ Video

The salsa superstar and Cuban reggaeton duo premiere euphoric clip for sure summer hit.
Following the fantastic formula that vaulted Enrique Iglesias’ “Bailando” to 2014 Latin song of the year, Marc Anthony has teamed up with Cuban reggaeton duo Gente de Zona for an all-ages track accompanied by a euphoric dancing-in-the-streets clip shot mainly in Havana.

The new video was directed by Cuban Alejandro Perez, who’s responsible for the 900-million viewed “Bailando” clip, and it again it artfully showcases Cuban dancers. Roclan Gonzalez, choreographer for the Cuban Television Ballet, also repeats his role, enlisting dancers from his contemporary dance company Ballet Revolution for “La Gozadera” with their bodies painted with the colors of Cuban, Puerto Rican, and other Latin American flags.

According to production notes from Sony Music Latin, footage of Anthony was shot in the Dominican Republic, not in Cuba. If that is true, the Nuyorican salsero and known Cuban music fan missed out on a hell of a fiesta during the making of this video in Havana.

Following a tropical music lyric tradition, “La Gozadera” calls out a list of countries from the Spanish-speaking world, inviting everyone to join the party. The happy show of Pan-Latin spirit pretty much guarantees the song’s international popularity.

The video is as much a promo for Cuba as it is the song. It starts out with a traffic jam of classic cars before erupting into a dance that will teach everyone some easy Cuban salsa moves. True to the title, “La Gozadera” is music for a good time, whether or not your summer plans include a vacation in Havana.

At the end of the day …. “Puerto Rico …. Preciosa”!!


PRPrec

~~August 9, 2015~~ 

“NO IMPORTA EL TIRANO TE TRATE CON NEGRA MALDAD”

Preciosa” (“Precious”)

is a 1937 patriotic composition by Puerto Rican composer Rafael Hernández Marín.

RedL

~HISTORY~

In 1937, Hernández Marin wrote “Preciosa“, while in Mexico. Years later, in 1947, he returned to Puerto Rico and became orchestra director at the government-owned WIPR Radio.

His music became an important part of Puerto Rican culture.

Hernandez formed Cuarteto Victoria (Victoria Quartet) with Pedro Ortiz Dávila, Rafael Rodríguez, and Franciso López Cruz with whom he recorded the song. A Puerto Rican group led by Manuel A. Jiménez (“Canario”) recorded Hernández’s Preciosa, which, together with Lamento Borincano became unofficial national anthems of Puerto Rico.

~THEME~

Preciosa expressed feelings of love and nostalgia for Puerto Rico but also the discontent regarding the poor economy prevalent on the island at the time. The work was an idealistic view of the people of Puerto Rico in terms of traits of Hispanic and Indian traditions but missing the African dimension.

The song made reference to a tyrant who ruled Puerto Rico and it became a favorite song of autonomist patriotism.

MARC ANTHONY’S RENDITION

Marco Antonio Muñiz (born September 16, 1968, better known by his stage name Marc Anthony, is an American actor, singer, record producer, and television producer. Anthony is also the top selling tropical salsa artist of all time. The two-time Grammy and five-time Latin Grammy winner has sold more than 12 million albums worldwide.

He is best known for his Latin salsa numbers and ballads. Anthony has won numerous awards and his achievements have been honored through various recognitions. He was the recipient of the 2009 Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) Chair’s Award. He also received the “2009 CHCI Chair’s Lifetime Achievement Award” on September 16, 2009.

As noted, this song was written in 1937. During this time, the Island was going through tough political times. There was the sense that Puerto Rico was ruled by a “distant tyrant” who made its present markedly felt in daily island life.

The lyrics speak about the island’s enchantments, its culture, its people, its pride, its stolen identity.

It’s ironic to note that this song applies perfectly to the current economical and political situation that Puerto Rico is experiencing.

The “tyrant” long spoken about is still there. As a matter of fact, it never left.

History repeats itself.

As I listened to this song and watched the awesome video today, I experienced the “chill factor”.

I had goosebumps as I felt my pride swell and my heart beat faster.

I am Puerto Rican and I will always be, no matter where I live.

THIS MEANS “PUERTO RICO FROM THE SKY”

Puerto Rico, officially known as the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico), is an unincorporated territory of the United States, located in the northeastern Caribbean, east of the Dominican Republic and west of both the U.S. Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands.

Puerto Rico is only 100 miles long by 35 miles wide, making it the smallest island of the Greater Antilles. Puerto Rico (Spanish for “rich port”) consists of an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and several islands: Vieques, Culebra, Mona and numerous islets.

BorderCal

Puerto Rico is my country. I was born and raised there. It’s not a perfect place. In reality it has the many problems that any country in the world. There’s economic conflict, politics is the national sport, there’s corruption in many agencies, there’s inequality between classes.

I think of it as a mini USA.

Still when you look at it from the beautiful Nature is possesses, it is a beautiful place.

The song played is called “Preciosa” (Precious). It’s a signature song for Puerto Rico which “talks” about the beauty of the Island and the pride that any Puerto Rican has for their homeland. It’s a “battle hymn” expressing the beauty, the pride and the certainty that, no matter what, Puerto Rico will always stand on its own, no matter the presence of the tyrant.

It’s very well performed by Marc Anthony .. a well known singer of Puerto Rican descent.
