ENGLISH: Cuban music fans around the world are in shock and mourning at news of the death of Tirso Duarte in Pasto, Colombia on September 29th. The information currently available is that he was savagely attacked following a concert in Tumaco. He was rushed to the hospital but the injuries were too severe.

Tirso was one of the leaders of the second generation of timberos. He was born in 1978 and grew up during the early days of the timba pioneers. He was a talented pianist, composer, arranger, singer and producer, and was also loved for his personality.

Kevin, who knew him best here at Timba.com, will post a full obituary on Monday. Our deepest condolences go out to his friends and loved ones. 

Fly high, Ángel Negro. You will live on through your music.
