At the age of 82, the salsa singer Larry Harlow died in a hospital in New York:


American Music Performer Larry Harlow died at the age of 82 at dawn this Friday in a hospital in his native New York, after suffering from kidney disease, according to his relatives.

"To all the Salseros of the World, I inform you with deep pain that after 32 days hospitalized my beloved Larry died at 12:30 in the morning of August 21, 2021, due to complications as a kidney patient that weakened his already exhausted heart", said his wife on the social networks of one of the founders of Fania.

'The Wonderful Jew', as he was also known, was part of the stellar group of Fania, a salsa group from the 70s, where he shared with other great artists of the genre such as Celia Cruz, Hector Lavoe, Richie Ray, Eddie Palmieri, and Papo Lucca, among many others.

Coming from a Jewish family with a musical vein, Harlow was born on March 20, 1939, in New York, and from a very young age began his passion for music.

Harlow dedicated his musical life to Cuban and Montuno sounds, Afro-Cuban jazz, mambo, guaracha, cha-cha, and salsa, genres that allowed him to become a famous performer, composer, and producer that he was.

Cuba was his musical cradle, where he formed and produced 106 albums for various artists and more than 50 of his own, in addition to those he made with Fania during the golden age of salsa.

Among his most famous productions are 'Abran Paso' and 'Tributo a Arsenio Rodríguez' with Ismael Miranda as the vocalist.

In 2008, Larry Harlow was awarded a Latin Grammy Award for his musical career.
