Often near the end of his live performances, Ricardo Arjona manages to tell his present fans, “Se les quiere.” In English, that translates to “you are loved.”

Arjona loves his fans and his most recent work, Arjona Metamorfosis En Vivo, proves that. Within this latest release, the 49-year-old Guatemalan singer-songwriter provides a rather intimate look of his “Metamorfosis Wolrd Tour.” The work is a compilation of the best images from the energetic tour. It’s a spectacular inside look at Arjona at his best.

The CD/DVD, which is now available, includes 2 CDs and 1 DVD. CD 1 features a total of 9 songs, while CD 2 sports 11. The special thing about this release lies within the DVD, which contains 19 total tracks performed live that can now be seen at any time. In this DVD (also available in BlueRay), we can also view the 4 stage set ups (hip loft, tempting bar, colorful circus, mellow theater) Arjona sported during his tour.

Arjona’s “Metamorfosis Wolrd Tour” lasted 15 months and it reached 20 countries, where a total of more than 2 million people witnessed his magic on stage. The tour broke records in the U.S. and Latin America.

Over the years, Arjona’s music style has been classified simply as Latin pop, but he is more than that. His peculiar manners in which he pens his tunes leaves us speechless most of the time, even though at times there are controversies here and there. To the people who follow his work, it doesn’t matter. They know he’s here to stay, just like Arjona Metamorfosis En Vivo.
