Artist: Pachito Nalmy
Music all the way from Perú for you today, my musical friends. If this doesn’t get you out of your seat for a dance, I don’t know what will!
Pedro Claver Nalmy Cabrera, known as Pachito Nalmy, died in 2015. There is a thoughtful and respectful obituary here by Antonio Alvarez Ferrando (in the Perúvian newspaper ‘El Comercio’) that details the high points of Pachito Nalmy’s musical career, and his importance in the world of salsa music. Well worth a read, as it reminds us just how dominant salsa music was, and how we must never forget the wonderful musicians who made it so.
