Video: José Luis Rodriguez “EL PUMA” Releases AGRADECIDO

MIAMI (October 25, 2019) – After making a miraculous recovery from double-lung transplant surgery in 2017, the legendary Venezuelan singer-songwriter José Luis Rodríguez, better known as “El Puma“, today releases Agradecido, his first album in two years. This production is available now in digital and physical formats.

Known as one of Latin music’s premier interpreters, El Puma has been a household name across the hemisphere for decades thanks to his incredible charisma and his appealing mix of knowing charm and vulnerability. Many of his contemporaries credit him as the first Venezuelan singer to reach superstardom, one whose acclaim opened the door for other creative talents from his country.

Agradecido features the world-class production and attention to detail that are the hallmarks of El Puma’s albums throughout his illustrious career. He is accompanied by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra on three tracks – the idyllic ode to his homeland of “Venezuela,” his romantic “Medley Caribe” and his original ballad “El Hombre Que Mereces.” This album was recorded in Miami under the production of Yasmil Marrufo.

In May, El Puma launched his Agradecido World Tour. He has performed across Latin America and the United States and has more dates coming soon. Visit www.elpuma.com for details.
