Ruben Blades is a Panamanian singer and actor who has a net worth of $15 million. Considered a musical icon in Panama and across Latin American countries, Ruben Blades' net worth grew from producing a string of hits then appearing in iconic films. As a professional singer/songwriter, Blades made a massive contribution to the music industry: his early work included a collaboration with Pete Rodriguez, producing hits such as Descarga Caliente and De Panama a New York, during the 1970s. Blades also worked with numerous award-winning artists, including Ray Barretto, Larry Harlow and Willie Colon. Blades and Colon went on to produce several albums, including Siembra (1978), which became the best-selling salsa album in history. His breakthrough hit, Pablo Pueblo (1977) later became an unofficial campaign song of Panama when he ran for president of the country. Whilst producing Grammy-award winning albums from the 1980's onwards, Blades crossed over to acting, making his debut in the 1982 film, The Last Fight. He also appeared in notable productions, including Mo' Better Blues and Predator 2. More recently, he appeared in action thriller film, Safe House (2012) and Once Upon a Time in Mexico (2003). In 2004, he put his career on hold to serve as Panama's minister of Tourism. He served the position for five years.
Rub?(C)n Blades Bellido de Luna (Spanish pronunciation: [ru????en ??ble??z]; born July 16, 1948) professionally known as Rub?(C)n Blades 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 canci??n 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 appears to die during a robbery (his song "Sorpresas" continues the story), inspired by "Mack the Knife." He also composed and sings what many Panamanians consider their second national anthem. The song is titled "Patria" (Fatherland).
He is an icon in Panama and is much admired throughout Latin America, 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 Mart?-n Torrijos for a five-year term. He holds a law degree from the University of Panama and a master's in international law from Harvard University. He is married to singer Luba Mason.
Blades was born in Panama City, Panama, the son of Cuban musician and actress Anoland Diaz (real surname Bellido de Luna), and colombian Ruben Dario Blades, Sr., a gifted athlete, percussionist and later a graduate of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics in Washington, DC. His mother's great-uncle Juan Bellido de Luna was active in the Cuban revolutionary movement against Spain and was later a writer and publisher in New York. Blades's paternal grandfather, Reuben Blades, was an English-speaking native of St. Lucia who came to Panama as an accountant. His family is not quite sure how the Blades family ended up in St. Lucia, but when his grandfathe
