Los Zafiros




"Los Zafiros formed in the Cuban capital of Havana in 1962. Their music was a mix of doo-wop, ballads, boleros, samba, tumbaos and twists. It was practically doo-wop with their own unique Cuban twist. Today only 2 members are alive, Manuel Galban and Miguel Cancio. Ignacio died in 1981 at 37 from complications of several heart attacks. Kike died at the same age in 1982 from cirrhosis of the liver. El Chino, beset by severe vision, speech and drinking problems, lived alone back in Cayo Hueso until his death on August 8, 1995 at age 56." (from wikipedia)
