Miguel Bose en Los Angeles @ Greek Theater
Miguel Bosé has been a force in Latin music in a career that has spanned dozens of albums and film roles, his own television show, and work as a theater director. The son of an actress (Lucia Bosè) and a bullfighter (Luis Miguel Dominguín), Bosé grew up in the arts — with Picasso and Ernest Hemingway among his family friends. He often traveled from his homeland of Panama to Milan, New York, London, Paris, and Madrid.
He made his film debut at the age of 15, and at age 21, he began his singing career, which eventually led to international pop stardom. Between 1977 and 1982, he recorded several albums for CBS, but it wasn’t until 1985 that he had his first hit with “Bandido.” A year later, he signed with Warner Bros., which led to more introspective LPs like Salamandra, which was overseen by producer Celso Valli (well known for with work with Eros Ramazzotti). This production was followed by XXX, Los Chicos No Lloran, and Directo ’90, a live recording compiling many of the artist’s hits.
