Artists from Cuba express regret for the death of Pablo Milanés
The notable pianist and National Music Award winner Frank Fernández extended his condolences for the physical departure of the singer-songwriter and trova icon in Cuba and Latin America Pablo Milanés, who died at the age of 77 in Madrid.
One of the greatest voices of Cuban culture of all time has just died, as well as an extraordinary composer, guitarist and brother of life. I extend to his children, his wife Nancy and all his loved ones a big hug and my support in this moment of pain, Fernández declared on his social networks.
For his part, the Cuban multi-instrumentalist Alain Pérez cataloged Milanés as an “infinite teacher of music and poetry of art and joy” and made public his tribute to the author of classics such as Yolanda or El breve espacio en que no estás.
Thank you Pablo dear for so much that you leave planted in our lives. To his family, loved ones and friends, all my support, Pérez said through his digital platforms.
Another special message of condolence was that by the Cuban company Acosta Danza, remembering Milanés as “one of the greatest singer-songwriters on our island, among the most loved and followed in Ibero-American music.”
Cuba sang with him (…) The unfading condition of his songs leaves us, beautiful everyday hymns with which we have loved, cried, lived, for decades, recognized the cast directed by the first dancer and figure of international dance, Carlos Acosta.
He also stressed that “Pablito, as he was known, has made us happy and having had him has been a greater luck. There will be no better way to remember him than to keep singing him from deep inside, forever.
Since last November 11, the National Music Award (2005) was hospitalized in Madrid, being treated for the effects related to the clinical situation caused by an onco-hematological disease that he suffered for several years.
