«With great pain and sadness, we regret to inform you that the teacher Pablo Milanés has passed away this morning of November 22 in Madrid. We deeply appreciate all the expressions of affection and support, to all his family and friends, in these difficult times. It will remain forever in our memory," says the statement that the family of the artist released on social media platforms. 

Pablo Milanés, 79, died this Tuesday in Madrid; where he moved in 2017 to receive medical treatment that did not exist, at that time, in Cuba.

The singer-songwriter was admitted to a hospital ten days ago for "the effects of a series of recurring infections that in the last three months have been affecting his state of health," according to a statement released by his family. Due to this, the artist was forced to suspend scheduled shows in northern Spain, Mexico and the Dominican Republic.

Pablo Milanés was the founder of Nueva Trova, a musical movement established after the advent of the Castro Revolution.

The composer began his career in the 1960s and over the years has won two Latin Grammys (2006) and a statuette for Musical Excellence (2015). He is the creator of hymns like Yolanda', 'Yo no te pido', 'El breve espacio' or 'Love me as I am'. During his artistic career he recorded albums and musicalized poets such as César Vallejo or José Martí.

Considered an activist of his country, Milanés' style was always characterized by combining modernity, jazz, and bolero, a style that led him to be called the most romantic of troubadours.
