The master of the cheesy Calypso

As we celebrate the remarkable survival of one early 20th century star, (see my previous blog about Joan Fontaine), so another old-timer has popped their clogs today.

At the remarkable ripe old age of 100, we at Dolores Delargo Towers are rather sad to hear of the death of Edmundo Ros - the man who brought Latin Music to drizzly Britain!

I featured a few of his songs when I blogged about his centenary last year, but in memoriam to a great master of the cheesy Calypso, here are some more of his classics to lighten our Saturday evening...

And off he goes to the great Cha-cha-cha in the sky... RIP Mr Ros.

BBC obituary


  1. Nice tribute! His music really "takes you away." RIP

  2. Yes, indeed! I really need a holiday, but the music of Mr Ros is the next best thing, I suppose... Jx
