Bandleader
    (December 11, 1916-September 14, 1989)
    Died in Mexico City, Mexico
    Recorded 'Que Rico Mambo (1948),' 'Mambo No. 5 (1952)' and 'Cherry Pink (1955)'
    Passed away from a stroke at 72
    Nicknamed 'The Mambo King'
    He was short.
    His trademark was including a grunt in his songs.
    When the American fascination with Latin rhythms faded, so did his popularity.
    One-hit wonder Lou Bega remade his instrumental hit 'Mambo No. 5,' adding cheesy lyrics.
    He studied classical piano as a child.
    His sound regained acclaim in the late-1990s.
    He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
    He continued to perform until he was 70.
