Cuban singer-songwriter Francisco Cespedes will return in mid-June to Puerto Rico, where he will offer a concert for which tickets are already on sale and which promises to cause his fans in the U.S. commonwealth to fall in love once again with his romantic style.
The performance will take place June 18 at the Fine Arts Center in Santurce, where – organizers say – “he will touch the most intimate sentimental fiber of all his romantic fans.”
Included in his repertoire that night will be his best-known hits, including “Con el permiso de Bola,” “Autorretrato,” “Ay Corazon,” “Dónde esta la vida” and “Vida loca,” the latter of which gave his international career its big boost.
Cespedes, who currently lives in Cancun, Mexico, will also present his latest album “Todavia,” produced by himself and his friend Aneiro Taño, who also produced his first three records.
The singer defected from Cuba while participating in a cultural mission to Mexico with the Cuban Modern Music Orchestra.
In 1997, the well-known admirer of Puerto Rico’s Cheo Feliciano, participated in the famous Viña del Mar Festival in Chile, representing Mexico and performing “Hablo de ti” from his first album “Vida loca.”
As per the biographical information provided by the artist’s public relations agent in Puerto Rico, in 1998 Cespedes joined the Spanish group Presuntos Implicados to record “Nadie como tu.”
