Latin Reggae Icon FIDEL NADAL to Release 'Forever Together' on Nov.8th
Nacional Records is proud to announce the November 8th release of Latin
reggae icon Fidel Nadal�s Latin GRAMMY nominated album �Forever Together�. Fidel
was a founding member and frontman for legendary Argentine rasta punk rockers
Todos Tus Muertos. In 1994, Fidel also joined Manu Chao and his band Mano Negra
to record the classic album �Casa Babylon� and hit the road for a groundbreaking
tour across Latin America.
Since leaving Todos Tus Muertos to go solo in
2000, Fidel has been known for his prolific nature, releasing more than 15
albums and collaborating with revered reggae masters around the globe,
performing alongside Sizzla, Alpha Blondy, Steel Pulse, Eek a Mousee, Toots
& Maytals, and Barrington Levy. His signature sound fuses reggae, dancehall
and sound-system beats along with fierce lyricism and a textured flow.
Fidel�s new album �Forever Together� features the Latin GRAMMY nominated
hit single �Me Robaste El Corazon� which has already earned almost 4 million
views on YouTube. In 2010, his smash hit �International Love� was included in
the popular EA Sports soccer video game �FIFA 10�.
Growing up, the Nadal
household always had music playing in the background � and it was loud. Fidel�s
father was a jazz connoisseur and as a result, his childhood was spent immersed
in the songs of classics like John Coltrane, Louis Armstrong and Otis Redding.
But Fidel�s first musical love was The Beatles. �I owned their entire
discography even though I did not know how to even read or write English,� he
explains. �I had memorized all the lyrics � phonetically that is.�
is a fifth-generation Argentine and descendent of Angolan slaves. When Fidel
first came across a record by Bob Marley, he knew he had found his true calling.
Marley led him to Jamaica, the Rastafarian movement and his own personal
connection to Africa.
�I identified with Marley because of his, and my,
race but, above all, I identified with the rebel,� Fidel says. �When you listen
to Bob Marley, you realize that it is not just simply songs. There is something
there that is much bigger.�
