I've just heard that Ibrahim Ferrer has died. You can read a BBC news story about this here. You can learn more about this wonderful musician, who had a most beautiful voice (which engages you whether or not you speak Spanish), here, and you can learn more about the Buena Vista Social Club project here. (I'd credit the photo if I could, but I don't know the original source. It was on the album cover of "Buena Vista Social Club Presents Ibrahim Ferrer" which is great.) Several of the original masters from that project have died now, Ferrer and Ruben Gonzalez being two of my favourites. Music - and life in general - are very much richer for their contributions. May they live forever! -cvj
