Today, Saturday, the family of the famous artist, Ismail Miranda, reported that the legend of live Puerto Rican salsa was transferred to the hospital in a health center on the Caribbean island due to physical problems.
The statement indicated that 70-year-old Miranda was taken to hospital on Friday due to discomfort and severe dizziness that affected his daily routine, without giving further information about what might be the cause of the artist’s problems.
He indicates that, with the medical recommendation, he will continue to be hospitalized until more in-depth studies are conducted that can provide an answer to the physical problems he began to suffer from on Friday.
The statement indicated that Miranda will remain in the hospital until more information about her health problems becomes available. The statement stated, “We are awaiting the doctors’ evaluation of the results and their development.”
At the age of 11, Miranda was part of the sets of The 4 J’s and Little Jr. And classmates, with whom he participated in various activities, including one of the first versions of the Jerry Lewis Show for Muscular Dystrophy.
He was part of the Pipo y su Combo Sextet, and Andy Harlow y su Sexteto group. In 1967 he recorded his first recording with Joy Pastrana titled “Let’s Ball”, when teenager Miranda recorded his first radio song with “Rumbón melón”.
With the good impression created by his performance with Andy Harlow, his brother, Larry, decided to enlist him in his band.
Convinced of the young singer’s potential, in 1968 Larry launched a new production entitled “Orquesta Harlow Presents Ismail Miranda”, followed by “Electric”, “Tribute to Arsenio Rodríguez”, “Harlow’s Harem”, “Abran paso” and “Opportunity”.
At the age of 19, he joined Fania All Stars, becoming the youngest singer in this group, earning the nickname “El Niño Bonito de la Salsa”.
It was golden from the sauce
At the height of the salsa boom, Ismail broke into the business with dizzying power in 1973 when he launched the production of This Is What A Son Is.
Later success accompanied him with songs such as “The Empty Bed”, “The Broken Cup”, “Burinquin Has Montuno”, “I Love My City” and “Las Quarantas”.
In the composition, he also recorded a number of successful songs such as “Señor sereno”, “Abren paso”, “So un son”, “Lupe and Lupe” and “Pa ‘bravo yo”, the latter being famous by Cuban Sonero Gusto Betancourt.
In the 1980s he recorded several productions with his independent record company, and in 1986 his recording “Versos de Nuestro Cultura”, along with singer-songwriter José Nogueras, was one of the biggest successes of the Christmas season.
In 1988 he announced his intention to withdraw from artistic media, but this idea did not bear fruit.
In the 1990s, Ismail recorded with his record company, IM Records, and with RMM. And at the end of the decade, his union with Andy Montañez on three record-breaking Bolero projects earned him popular support.
