Like Merecumbe and cumbia master PACHO GALAN
He was the creator of a huge variety of rhythms and mixes of those, among which the merencumbé, chiquichá, tuqui- tuqui, mece – mece are specially remembered. Autodidactic, when he was young he learned to play the trumpet and the guitar in Barranquilla, city where he moved to after finishing his primary studies at Soledad, where he was born in 1906. When he was
thirty and until his death in Barranquilla in 1979, he did and composed all kinda folklore including porro, cumbia, gaita and merercumbe. His songs include Boquita Sala, Rio Y Mar, Fiesta de Cumbia, Cumbia Alegre and Ay Cosita Linda, which became one of his most famous after Nat King Cole recorded his own rendition of the song.
