From Sis. Ana
Panamanian national, Basilio Fergus went to Spain to study medicine and realized his true calling was composing songs and singing. With his rich angelic voice, he became an international star troughout the Spanish speaking world. Cisne Cuello Negro-Black Necked Swan, a song that talks about how the word” black” has been debased, became one of his most popular songs.
Basilio succumbed to cancer and died in 2009. Panamanian soprano, S.E. Dianna Torre, paid tribute to Basilio on Dia de la Etnia Negra: Black Ethnicity Day, celebrated on May 30th across the isthmus of Panama.
Beautiful! Thanks for this Sis. Ana!
