Costa Ricans are mourning the unexpected death of Fidel Gamboa, 50, the well known composer, singer and lead of the internationally known group Malpaís.
He died of a heart attack Sunday.
Even President Laura Chinchilla sent a message of
condolence to the musician’s family.
Fans conducted a candle light remembrance in the band stand of Parque Morazán Sunday night. More observances are planned.
Gamboa was a guitarist and someone who could present his own songs in ballad style.
Malpaís is easily the country’s best known group.
