people has heard about Andres Mauricio Cabas (Cabas) one the most
famous singers and songwriters. Personality I heard about he when I was
between 10 or 11 years old, the song that I heard was “Bonita” one of
the most recognized songs from he. From this moment until know I heard
his songs and I think that I learned different types of things that can
make me successful or can help me when I become older.
He was born in Barranquilla, Colombia, on 7th of October of 1976. His
father is Eduardo Cabas de la Esprilla, he began teaching Cabas music
at the age of five, he also began studying piano and percussion. This
inspires me because he began to study what he like when he was a little
boy and I think that also is time to began thinking or looking for the
things I like and began studying it and doing what passionate me like
Cabas do it, he is a hot shot.
Cabas produced the song “Mi bombón” and this song was recognized
nationally and internationally. When he begins looking for what kind of
music he wants to play he decide with his former teacher, Helbert
Ballestas, to mix Colombian folk and Rock Latino. The problem is that
most of people say to he that was a bad idea, but he never thinks that,
on contrary he always has a positive mentality and always said that all
people were going to like it. At 2001 the song “Mi Bombón” was showed
to the society and it has a very good result, all people liked a lot
and they like the rhythm it has, he shows to the people that say to him
that this type of music was not going to work, that his idea funtion
because he always thinks positive. For this reason, I think that Cabas
is a very good example of person and that’s why I admire he.
The last characteristic that I learned from Andres Mauricio Cabas, is
that he always works hard to obtain what he wants, he is a person that
do his things be his own, he does not like that someone do what he can
do, that’s why he become one of the great ambassadors of Colombian
music and one of the contemporary Latin American songwriters with
greater impact internationally.
Finally, this ones are the reasons I think that can help me to be
successful in live when I become older, and also are the reasons why I
admire he and why I follow his career.
