Lupita and I are extremely saddened to learn of the death of beloved musician Odilón Mendoza Lozano, who with his cousin made up the musical duo Los Romanceros del Balsas. For many years they were our very favorite local musicians, and we enjoyed their music and their conversation frequently over the decades. We were listening to their music just last evening on our rooftop and wondering about don Odilón's well being.

Sad to hear this news. Absolutely great musicians; two true gentlemen who proudly spoke of their Families and their beloved Zihuatanejo.

How very sad. For many years when we were eating dinner at a restaurant along the Paseo de Pescador, we'd ask them to play and sing 2-3 songs for us. They were true romantic Zihua icons and we'll truly miss them.

Nice article today en El diario ABC de Zihuatanejo about their origins and their lives.

Hmm, couldn't find the article.

Sad indeed. Won't be the same without those two playing a few songs with a nice meal.

An excellent bio by my old friend and former neighbor Rodrigo Campos. I read part of it on Face, but thanks for posting the newspaper link here. Much easier to read.
