Compay Segundo

Legendary Cuban guitarist Compay Segundo was born in 1907; collaborating with the likes of Sindo Garay, Miguel Matamoros and Benny Moré, he emerged as one of the most respected musicians of the pre-revolution era, and in the late '20s invented the armónico, a guitar customized with a double third string to fuse the tonal qualities of the traditional Cuban tres guitar and its Spanish counterpart. Following Fidel Castro's rise to power, Segundo worked as a cigar roller before returning to music during the late '80s; in his early nineties he attracted worldwide attention in 1998 for his contributions to Ry Cooder's wildly successful Buena Vista Social Club album, issuing the solo Calle Salud the following year. Buena Vista Connection was issued in fall 2000. Flores de la Vida followed later that same year; Trova Cubana surfaced in early 2001. The torrent of releases, both new and reissues of classic pre-fame Segundo sessions, continued throughout 2001 with Yo Vengo Aqui, Que Lio Compay Andres and into 2002 with Yo Soy del Monte and Dos Leyendas de Cuba. On July 13 of the following year Compay Segundo died of kidney failure at his home in Havana. ~ Jason Ankeny

I had occasion to go to Cuba several times between 1996 and 2002. (U.S. Liscensed biz). My dad was exiled by the revolution and my trips were amazing, upsetting, enlightening and unforgettabl e . A guy we hired as a private driver took me to see Compay Segundo at a club in Havana's Miramar neighborhood . Until that moment I was just the gringo son of an exile. Afterwards Soy Cubano Siempre.

Despues de haber llegado a este gran pais hace mas de 45 años, aun se me derraman las lagrimas de felicidad cuando escucho nuestra musica Cubana. Gracias a Dios por esa gran dicha que otorgó a nuestra tierra. Compai Segundo ( Francisco Repilado ) fue una honra para Cuba.

Cuba ha sido uno de los principales semilleros de grandes musicos.Tuve suerte en conocer a los Lecuona Cuban boys in 1948, actuando al aire libre en Montevideo,U r u g u a y , junto a la inolvidable Celia Cruz. En esa oportunidad estrenaron una famosa Conga AL CARNAVAL DEL URUGUAY..

A few years back I heard Ibrahim and Compay and was knocked off my feet. How grateful I am they were rediscovered along with many other Cuban iconic artists of the 50's and 60's. Celebrate Cuba, central and South American people and their priceless artistic contribution to the world.
