No ha muerto. Ha iniciado
un viaje atardecido.
De azul en azul claro
—de cielo en cielo— ha ido
por la senda del sueño
con su arcángel de lino.

Gabriel García Márquez, ‘Geografía Celeste’ (primera parte)  (via lefabuleuxdestindunpoete)

"Anacaona" is one of my favorite Cheo Feliciano songs. It was written by the great Tito Curet Alonso, one of the greatest Puerto Rican composers. The song tells the story of Anacaona, a Taíno cacica.

This clip is from the 1972 documentary Our Latin Thing, a film by Leon Gast which explores the Latin music explosion of the 70s centered in NYC. It features a mind-blowing performance by Feliciano and other members of the Fania All Stars at the Cheetah Club in New York City, as well as a behind-the-scenes look in the studio with Larry Harlow, Feliciano and others.

He was 78.

Puerto Rico Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla declared three days of mourning for the widely admired salsero.

Los seres humanos no nacen para siempre el día en que sus madres los alumbran, sino que la vida los obliga a parirse a sí mismos una y otra vez.

Based on small case studies, the top 5 regrets of dying are: 1) Not living life being true to self 2) Having worked too hard 3) Not having the courage to express feelings 4) Not staying in touch with friends, and 5) Not letting yourself be happier.
