“Compay.” My dad says that all the time. Compay. In Cuban it means friend.
“Oye, compay, como estas?”
At 95, Cuba’s Compay Segundo, of the Buena Vista Social Club fame, died yesterday. Not only have we lost a brilliant musician, but a buen Compay.

If you’ve never heard his music, drop me a line, I’ll gladly send you a tune or two.

  1. I’ve got a bunch of his stuff. I love listening to it. Even though it’s mostly new music, the ritmo cubano reminds me of all those stories about Cuba I’ve heard from my family.
