Edgar Ricardo Arjona Morales, known to most by the name Ricardo Arjona is a singer-songwriter from Guatemala. Growing up in Guatemala City, Arjona began taking music lessons at a young age. However, while he was in school his main hobby was playing basketball. He eventually toured Central America as a member of the Guatemalan national basketball team.
At age 21, Arjona signed with the Guatemalan record label Discos de Centroamerica S.A. and released his debut album, Déjame Decir Que Te Amo in 1985. The Latin pop album was awarded 3 stars by Allmusic, however the album failed to chart and was essentially a commercial failure.
After a short stint as a teacher, Arjona recorded and released his second album Jesús, Verbo No Sustantivo in 1988. The album was a commercial success across Latin America and the United States. After releasing the unsuccessful album, Del Otro Lado del Sol in 1991, he released Animal Nocturno in 1993, which was certified 2x Platinum by the RIAA. To date, his most popular album was Adentro (2007), which won a Grammy for Best Latin Pop Album in 2007. Most recently, Arjona released the album Viaje in March of 2014, bringing the total number of Ricardo Arjona albums to 14.
Although Arjona’s style is primarily Latin pop his sound has varied over the years in order to keep his music from sounding dated. His albums have included music that incorporates a large variety of instruments, including guitar, drums, synthesizer, piano, horns, organ, and string instruments.
In September 2015, Arjona will be embark on a brief tour in the United States. The shows will take place in some of the country’s largest arenas, including Madison Square Garden in New York City and American Airlines Arena in Miami.
