The world of music in Mexico in mourning! Singer Luis Manuel Mercado, better known as Luis Manuel ‘El de la Paloma’, has died at the age of 75. The Mexican ‘highlighted’ the pride of his roots in each song and came to be recognized for his work.
Since childhood, the Mexican felt a strong attraction to singing, theater and music. So much so, that popular music became his base and platform for his talent. Luis Manuel ‘El de la Paloma’ also composed songs but in an unusual way.
What did Luis Manuel ‘El de la Paloma’ die of?
And it is that Luis Manuel liked to compose songs in 28 different native languages, according to El Informador. It is likely that “Nonatzin”, a poem set to music by Netzahualcóyotl, one of the most important historical figures in Mexico for his notable contributions, was one of his most recognized songs.
The Mexican interpreter was diagnosed with a “very advanced illness”, which in recent days affected his routine and did not allow him to appear at the ‘Annual Meeting of Indigenous Peoples’ in Guachimontones, according to the newspaper The reporter.
