Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Padú del Caribe or Father of the Caribbean (born Juan Chabaya Lampe on April 26, 1920) is an Aruban musician & songwriter who has been recording & composing for more than half a century.

He wrote "Aruba Dushi Tera", a waltz that is now the national anthem for Aruba. It was a rallying cry for separation from the Netherlands Antilles until independence was achieved in 1986. Lampe has been given the highest honors in Aruba. He is still going strong at 93 years of age. He is a composer, singer, pianist, artist, & author…a true Renaissance man.

On Toy Contendo, the musicians are: Padú del Caribe – piano; Miguel Acosta – cuatro (a small ukulele- size four stringed guitar); José Velázquez – double or upright bass; & Jacobo Espinoza – percussion.

Padú Del Caribe – Toy Contento Vol. 2, RCA Victor LPV-7076, 1961.
