Details of Issac Delgado and the Ticket Luck value
Indisputably one of the biggest stars in Cuba, Issac Delgado is the very heart and soul of Timba music. Issacs music, which combined elements of Afro-Caribbean rhythms with pop and jazz, evolved over the course of his career, making him one of Cubas most famous modern salsa musicians.
Inventive vocalist Issac Delgado also included experiments with electronic elements and avant-garde sounds. He was born into a theatrical and musical family in Havana. His primary school education took place in Ciudad Libertad and at age ten he entered into the Amadeo Roldan Conservatory where he studied the violoncello.
Issac began his music career with a band called Proyecto, also featuring the famed pianist and composer Gonzalo Rubalcalba. Gonzalo Rubalcalba proved to be a powerful force in Issac Delgados music, providing mentorship, support and inspiration. Categorized by the modernization of old popular Cuban music, Proyectos music sparked Issac's innate love for music.
He decided to study vocal technique with Mariana De Gonich, one of the best vocal instructors in Cuba. After a couple of years of performing as an amateur, Issac launched his professional career in 1983. He played at the Orquestra de Pacho Alonso with which he toured internationally for the first time.
By the late 80s, Issac Delgado had already toured extensively while performing with famous international figures in Australia, Holland, France, Spain, Italy, Czechoslovakia, Panama, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru. Issacs forthcoming projects were Pacho Alonsos Orchestra and the Galaxia Group, where he recorded his first albums.
He began to gain momentum and fame began to enter his life when he became the lead vocalist in the group NG La Banda. This Cuban Dance Group would attract large audiences in Europe, Japan, Latin America and the U.S. with their lively playing and 1992 hit album, entitled En La Calle. It spawned the number one world beat single of the year, Necesito Una Amiga.
While working with NG La Banda, Issac found great popularity and fame throughout the country. Issac Delgado recorded three CDs with the band. NG La Banda was created primarily with the intention of bringing together some of the country's most talented musicians which could create a contemporary sound by fusing traditional influences and popular contemporary rhythms.
It was awarded the EGREM 1990-1991 prize for being the band with the most technically developed level of music. The group also enjoyed the most popularity on the island. Simultaneously, Issac was working on his own projects and formed his own orchestra in 1991.
In 1991, Issac Gelgado came up with his own album; he called it Dando La Hora. Under the artistic direction of Gonzalo Rubalcalba, the album was released on Artcolor Records. Issac made use of an unusual feature, the first computer synchronized horn section in salsa. Dand La Hora received the 1992 EGREM Prize.
After giving a hit record, Issac began working on another CD, Con Ganas. Released in 1993, the album again featured Rubalcaba and managed to earn the Cuban artist two EGREM prizes. It was a commercial success, and a little closer to traditional salsa music. In 1995, Issac was signed to the RMM record label who issued his El A?o Que Viene.
El A?o Que Viene earned Issac Delgado another EGREM award. Delgados second RMM release, Otra Idea was recorded in New York and featured Iv?n Mel?n Gonz?lez, arranger and songwriter Joaqu?n Betancourt, and Afro-Caribbean dance music artists Isidro Infante, Johnny Almendra, Papo Pep?n, and Ruben Rodr?guez.
Followed to the release, he performed at the festival Guerra de la Salsa with La India, Rey Ruiz, and Tony Vega in 1997. Since then, Issac has kept up his level of popularity not only in Cuba, but the world over. He gave a final album for RMM, La Primera Noche: Desde Europa con Sabor in 1998.
Issac called its quits with RMM and signed to Bis Music through whom he released a pair of albums. He came up with the Grammy-nominated La F?rmula in 2000 and then released Versos en el Cielo in 2002.
Versos en el Cielo was inspired by the nueva trova cubana movement of the 1960s and included such songs as Coraz?n Coraz?n by Angel Quintero, Orden del D?a by Frank Delgado, Identidad and T? Mi Desenga?o by Pablo Milanes, and Quien Fuera and Vamos a Andarfrom by Silvio Rodriguez.
Issac appeared with Prohibido in 2005. The following year, he walked across the U.S.-Mexico border into Laredo, Texas; bringing with him only his family, talent and reputation.
In the mid of 2007, Issac Delgado released his latest album, called Primera Plana. Featuring a duet with salsa superstar V?ctor Manuelle on the hit single La Mujer Que M?s Te Duele, the album was nominated for a Latin Grammy in the category of Best Salsa Album. Currently, Issac is living in Tampa, Florida and is considered one of the greatest singers in Cuba.
