Latin America / Venezuela / Caracas
Venezuelan Richard “Saoco” Rodríguez
There is a great variety of countries in Latin America that are incredible, but none as varied, dynamic and beautiful as Venezuela, a country that is known for having beautiful and varied landscapes, a great variety of climates and fauna, and Venezuelans are very pleasant, respectful and mostly partygoers. On this occasion we have the pleasure of meeting the young salsa singer, Richard “Saoco” Rodríguez who sees the light in the city of Guarenas, the neighboring town of the great city of Caracas, Venezuela.
Since he was very young, he has stood out as a vocalist in local salsa genre groups, he was driven by recommendations from family and friends, he decided to compose his own songs and make contact with two great and renowned musical arrangers such as José “Tuky” Torres and Héctor “Chispa Hurtado, the latter is the one who takes the reins as music producer and arranger of his orchestra.
Richard “Saoco” Rodríguez has the ability to compose songs in a very contagious way, he takes up the essence of Son, Mambo and Guaguancó.
He has received 4 important awards from the Music Industry such as the Popular Vote of the Singing Festival at the Teatro Principal in 2016, the Compas de Oro Award for International Salsa in 2017, Salsa Revelation Figure of the Year in 2017, Yara Awards The Best Salsa Singer with International Projection in 2018.
Today he presents a musical proposal with the launch of his new song titled “Soon you will return”, where he incorporates the Harp which is an emblematic instrument of Venezuela that resounds in the musical sound that maestro Héctor “Chispa” Hurtado gives it.
Consequently, Richard gets emotional when he tells us about this song, telling us that it all started one day watching the planes leave the Simón Bolívar Airport.
“I went to accompany a great friend who was going to Argentina and on the way home I thought about how hard it is to leave our land, leave our loved ones to undertake new challenges in another country. When I got home, the muse and nation came up with this beautiful song “Soon You Will Be Back” where I remind my Venezuelan brothers of our customs, the importance of sharing with the family, reminding them that we are a happy, pachanguero country.”
