Édgar Ricardo Arjona Morales was born on January 19, 1964 in Jocotenango, Guatemala. His parents are Ricardo Arjona Moscoso and Nohemí (“Mimi”) Morales de Arjona; He has two sisters, Ingrid and Verónica Arjona. He lived most of his childhood in Guatemala City, where he began his musical training.At the age of twelve, he participated in the Festival Festival Infantil 74, which won with the song “Gracias al mundo”, a composition of his father.

Although he began his career in architecture and engineering, he graduated from the School of Communication Sciences of the University of San Carlos de Guatemala (USAC). He assures that he studied the race only because he had turned out badly in front of his parents after having given up for basketball a scholarship in one of the best private universities in Guatemala. However, despite not having ever held the race, he did awaken some interest in him.Arjona was a talented basketball player who played for Leones de Marte and for TRIAS.As a member of the national team of Guatemala, he toured Central America . Until recently, he had the record of the Guatemalan player with the most points (78) scored in a single basketball game.Before recording his first album and while he was in college, he was a school teacher like his father. He taught all grades at a primary school called Santa Elena III, where he taught for three hours. His autobiographical page pointed out that in the report of an official of the Ministry of Education, sent to evaluate the students, it was mentioned that the level of school education of the Arjona students was higher than the average level.

When he was 7 years old his father gave him his first guitar and taught him to play. He started writing songs between 12 and 13 years old. He writes his first song entitled “Esa es mi barca” almost forcibly, because of the remorse of having participated twice in the Festival Infantil Juventud 74 (A festival of unpublished songs) winning both times with songs from his father stating that they were his authorship With this song, he wins the festival for the third time and pays a debt to himself. At the end of 1985 his partner (at that time), without informing him of anything, organized an appointment with a label (record company) in Guatemala that hires him and with which he recorded his first album. Ricardo Arjona has said on multiple occasions that he never wanted to be a singer.

His mother at certain times recommended that he give up music, because it was not a good idea to take up the profession because of the times in which they lived. He confessed that only by contradicting the words of his mother did he find his vocation. In 1988 he left Guatemala for Argentina to participate in the OTI Festival and he no longer returns to his country, which is why he was criticized. He stays in Argentina for a while, where he sang at the Piano Bar from a hotel they assured her room and breakfast, then she went to sing in another nearby bar, as well as in Florida Street, where most of the street artists in the area presented their own performance. He left Argentina and returned to Guatemala for a short time, in 1989 he decided to leave for Spain, but in order to reach his destination he had to make a stop at the airport in Mexico City, the singer-songwriter prolonged this scale so much that Mexico ended up becoming his new house.

He stayed for a while in a hotel in the center and a hotel pizza, attended often to a bar in La Zona Rosa called La Cucaracha, where one day he got a friend who took him from that hotel and hosted him for about days in his apartment, in the end he ended up throwing it. In Mexico he got appointments with some record companies, two producers from different companies asked him to bring ten songs in a month to record a record, when Arjona came back with everything ready to the two producers had fired them. In one of the quotes, another producer after hearing a couple of his songs told him to dedicate himself to something else. With the need to pay the rent he begins to write songs for other artists, and although his song «La mujer I did not dream “, for the telenovela To reach a star in the voice of Eduardo Capetillo was among the first positions, Ricardo Arjona did not obtain any type of income for it, nevertheless a television executive proposed him after writing the theme of the novel a role within it, which he accepted without thinking only to get some money and lied saying he had studied theater in his country and had experience acting on television.

Sony Music after rejecting it repeatedly signed it due to a deal that an important producer and friend of the singer-songwriter arranged, consisting of the fact that if the company wanted to sign two artists for whom it was interested, they had to sign Ricardo Arjona as well. . After waiting for almost a year after being signed, he decides that it is time to make the record and starts installing everything for production and a week before starting, the company canceled everything and put conditions on it, if he wanted to making the record he had to pay for it himself. He began to record many of his old songs on cassettes and went to the publishers to borrow money in exchange for these songs and with that money records his album Animal nocturne. The record likes it, but the company keeps the record and does not let anything else happen, until much later Arjona finds himself in the corridors of Sony Music with Aloysio Reis, the new artistic director of the company, who after being enchanted by the listening to the album, he brings it to light and begins the great success as an international singer-songwriter for Ricardo Arjona.
