Popular Cuban composer Concha Valdés Miranda died in Miami after several days in the hospital; she was 89 years old. Her friend, Armando Aluart, wrote “Our great composer Concha Valdés Miranda, our Latin pride, has just died. She told me that she wanted to be remembered beautiful and beautiful inside and out. A million thanks to her friends, fans, and admirers, who will always remember her as someone very special, unique.”

Born in Havana, on July 16, 1928, she was considered one of the most daring composers of bolero songs. In the early 60’s she left for the United States, where she developed her career as a composer.

Among her most well-known songs are “El que más te ha querido”, “El viaje”, “Tú te lo pierdes” and “Aburrida”.

Her songs were made popular by the voices of singers such as Toña la Negra, Celia Cruz, Lucía Méndez, Blanca Rosa Gil, Olga Guillot, Los Panchos, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Elena Burke, Tito Puente, John Secada, Sergio Vargas, José Alberto “El Canario”, Johnny Ventura, Cheo Feliciano, Lucho Gatica, and Moncho, among others.
