CUBAN VOCALIST SUREDA DEAD AT 85

Legendary Cuban singer Láito Sureda has died in a Havana hospital of respiratory 
failure. He was 85. 

Sureda was a star of the "bolero" form of romantic ballad in the '40s and '50s, 
working with orchestras and groups such as Sonora Matancera, America, and Cuba 
Habana. He fell into obscurity after the 1959 revolution but was "rediscovered" 
along with many of his contemporaries in the mid-'90s, when Compay Segundo and 
Vieja Trova Santiaguera performed his hits. 

In 1996, he formed a band, Láito y Su Sonora, and signed to Spanish indie label 
Eurotropical, which is to release a posthumous studio album recorded this year. 

-- Howell Llewellyn, in Madrid

Laito is music, Cuban music, and as he says in his biography, "Yes, my business is the band: piano, bass, bongos, a striking tumbadora, guitar, two or three trumpets and a choir with singers capable of playing maracas and claves.....that, and me shouting; Then the hell with it all, let the world tumble..."~ from Ahi-Nama
