Miguel Bose – Biography
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. In 1993, Bosé’s music moved into a more political vein with the album Bajo el Signo de Cain, which addressed such issues as Yugoslavia’s political turmoil, ecological concerns, and aspects of his stardom. It ended up being his first platinum album. With an increasingly powerful international profile as a singer and actor, he released Laberinto in 1995 and went on a 125-concert tour of Spain and Latin America to support the album. This was followed in 1997 by 11 Maneras de Ponerse un Sombrero and, in 1999, a greatest hits album, Lo Mejor de Bosé. In the following decade, Bosé’s popularity continued undiminished; he released four more studio albums and two live albums. In 2000 he recorded Girados, a collaborative double live album with Ana Torroja. 2002’s Sereno won him a Latin Grammy for Best Male Pop Performance, while 2005’s Velvetina saw him stepping outside the box to experiment with electronic dance-pop (even the cover was a clear homage to Kraftwerk).

Defying the contemporary formula for pop success, this Latin Grammy Award winner’s music has been described as a global fusion of many musical influences. At the center of this is all the passion and expression of a Latin artist, and Miguel Bosé has constantly incorporated more diverse musical elements than many of the genre’s crossover pop stars—while performing across the Americas and in Europe.
Among his many, many hits, “Amante Bandido,” released in 1984, still receives radio airplay today.
