Receive our affection and admiration for your work and career, Blades announced on his Facebook website, I share this recognition from the Academy with you and my colleagues "Guaco", Juan Luis, "El Canario" and Victor Manuelle, all nominees and deserving of the award, he said.

Here nobody loses, on the contrary, respect connections are strengthened, noted the musician.

Fernando Dewar, director of the septet, reiterated on behalf of the group his admiration for Blades´ music; we grew up with it and keep listening to it, he stated.

In fact, everyone in the Septet enjoyed the album Son de Panama since its premier; it was very emotional to hear it for the first time and listening to that the first sentence said on the album alludes to Santiago de Cuba.

Having shared nomination with him, Juan Luis Guerra, Guaco and Victor Manuelle has been fabulous and unquestionably represents a milestone in our career, Dewar said.

Ruben Blades and the Santiaguero Septet had the opportunity to work together in the phonogram Vamos pa 'la fiesta, winner of the 2013 Cubadisco award in Traditional Music, and in which the poet of salsa collaborated on the tracks Lagrimas Negras and Contestame.

Son de Panama was nominated along with No quiero llanto. Tributo a Los Compadres, Presente continuo, by Guaco; Todo tiene su hora, by Juan Luis Guerra and 440, and Que suenen los tambores, by Victor Manuelle, for Best Tropical Latin Album.
