Victor Pantoja: Legendary Boricua Congero Passes Away!

In this photo: "Papa" Pantoja is pushed to greater heights during his conga solo by, fellow Boricua congero, David Romero. I am very proud to say that both of these fine musicians played in my band: Rain People.

In a few days I will be able to write a more appropriate tribute to a man who meant so much to me...but right now I just can't deal with yet another obituary on this blog.


  1. Papa was a beautiful person, I am also so deeply saddened words I cannot express how I feel, we lost another wonderful performer... I can only say that he was a beautiful person and he always had that big smile his laugh..He will always be in my heart! May he rest in peace and be with his lovely wife and our wonderful brothers Pete Perez and Bobby Espinoza..may they all make beautiful music up in heaven.

  2. Gracias Maria! Estoy aqui tratando de manejar este momento!

  3. igualmente, amigo...que dios los bendiga..
