one more goodbye

Gotta say farewell and good luck to Alfredo Morua Averhoff, who joined our music scene for a short time this summer. Alfredo, a master pastry chef, moved back to New York suddenly for professional reasons, and his presence is already missed. He was an easygoing, adaptable musician who sang rumba and played percussion with Tambor Vivo among others.

Unforgettably, Alfredo sang me a birthday rumba at their last concert at the Carrboro Century Center, with some very beautiful personalized lyrics. That was the icing on the cake.

We will miss Alfredo's smile, his Cuban style, and his bald profile! (Of which he is proud.) He knows he's got friends in Carolina.

I am late on this one.

I have to say, this sucks. Alfredo was an awesome guy and having nice Rumba vocals was such a treat for us a all...

It would be a lie to say that it's not a blow to the scene.

Fun while it lasted... :(
