This great star of Latin music is also an activist, a composer, actor and a lawyer; to all of this, we can add his experience as Panama’s Minister of Tourism for five years. Rubén Blades, the inventor of “intellectual salsa”, so-called because of its socially involved lyrics, never rests; he has just finished his Todos Vuelven
tour, he has been filming a movie in Mexico and has recently won his ninth Latin Grammy. He talks to Roberto Pombo about musical innovation, social commitment and about how he combines music with his other projects.
