Grammy award nominee Maelo Ruiz to perform in Dallas this Sunday

Direct from Puerto Rico!—Grammy award nominee Maelo Ruiz this coming Sunday @Mambo Café!

Dallas, TX — Salsa Dallas and Mambo Café once again team up to bring Dallas the hottest in Tropical entertainment with a hot presentation directly from Puerto Rico, Grammy award nominee time and time again, Maelo Ruiz.

Ismael Ruiz Hernandez, commonly known as Maelo, was born October 22, 1966, in New York. Four years later he and his family relocated back to their native Puerto Rico. Always a lover of music, Maelo began his formal education at the age of 16, singing at La Escuela Libre de Música de Caguas under the direction of Juan Pacheco. Three years later, at the age of 19, Maelo began his professional career as the lead singer for Pedro Conga y Su Orquesta. In the seven years he spent under Pedro Conga’s direction, Ruiz recorded four albums, including the hit “No Te Quites la Ropa,” which went on to sell better than 50,000 units. Salsa favorites like “Quiero Volver,” Si Supieras and “Me Niegas Tanto Amor” earned Ruiz gold records in Colombia and Puerto Rico, but more importantly, recognition all over the salsa-listening world. Ruiz’s first release of his own, entitled Solo, spent four straight weeks at number one throughout Latin America. In 1995, the song “Rumba de Oro” earned Ruiz the title of Best Salsero in Ecuador and Peru. His second production, Experiencia, won fans in Mexico and the southwestern U.S., while his third release expanded his fan base further, winning the hearts of salsa lovers all over Europe. In 2003, Maelo signed with the independent label Codiscos.

From earning fans in Puerto Rico and around the world, Maelo Ruiz brings his romantic style of Salsa to Dallas as fans eagerly await him. It has been over 8 years since his previous Dallas performance.

    Maelo Ruiz is a rude, obnoxious, narcissist, unprofessional performer. He made the audience and the band super uncomfortable with his frustrations. He threw a tantrum just like a 2-year old little girl right on the stage. Except he’s a grown male, so… no le luce. Very sad man!!!!
