Ruben Blades has composed dozens of musical hits, the most famous of which is "Pedro Navaja", a song about a neighborhood thug who is killed by a very attractive street walker he actually knows (he tries to kill her, she shoots him, they both die, a bum finds them, and takes his belongings; Blades' song "Sorpresas" continues the story), inspired by "Mack the Knife". He also composed and sings "Patria" (Motherland), which many Panamanians consider their second national anthem. He has won eight Grammy Awards and five Latin Grammy Awards.
