Havana, May 5 (EFE).- Legendary Cuban musician Cesar Portillo, one of the island's best known composers, died in Havana, state media reported. He was 90.
Portillo, who composed the hits "Contigo en la distancia" and "Tu mi delirio," died on Saturday, the AIN news agency reported.
He was one of Cuba's most prolific composers and one of the great promoters of the bolero.
Portillo founded the "filin" musical movement, inspired by the Hispanization of the English word "feeling," along with Jose Antonio Mendez and other Cuban musicians.
