    Compay Segundo of Buena Vista Social Club died on sunday. Guitarist/songwriter/singer of afrocuban son music he will be missed!

    If you hadn't heard his work check it out, he was amazing.

    I'm glad i got to see him a couple years ago. Even as a 93 year old, he put on a great show. He was up there playing and dancing...
