1963: Ernesto Lecuona died and we remember his songs

Ernesto Lecuona, the greatest Cuban composer of the 20th century, died on this day in 1963. His story is one of music and more music.

He was born on August 6, 1895 in Guanabacoa, near Havana.

We remember him for “Malaguena”, “Siboney,” “Always in My Heart”, “Andalucia” and so many others.
