Adán López Dávilam, two-time Grammy-winning band Los Acosta, died on Tuesday after a long battle with cancer, his representatives said as per DailyMail. He was 61 years old.
The Mexican music composer was known for his romantic style. His career spanned for more than three decades.
Who was Adán López Dávila?
Adán López Dávilam was a Mexican-born composer for Los Acosta.
Adán López Dávila was born in San Luis Potosí in 1962. He started his musical career when he was 14 years old. The poetry of Pablo Neruda and Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz inspired him to pursue a career as a composer. He consequently started singing songs that he wrote.
He met Ernesto and Ricardo Acosta, the leaders of Los Acosta, in the 1980s. Together, they started a journey that produced songs like “Historias de Amor,” “Caprichos de Mujer,” “Borracho de tristeza,” “El amor de mi vida,” and “Tonto corazón,” among others.
Members of Los Acosta expressed their sorrow over the passing of their partner on social media and reaffirmed that they were by his side during his final days in the hospital, where he ultimately passed away.
A few words of farewell were said on his behalf by the team, of which he was the author of several successes. Los Acosta posted on their Facebook page, “With a lump in my throat and a broken heart, I tell you see you soon my great friend, poet, and composer.”
Ricardo Gallardo, the governor of his home state, expressed regret over the passing of the Mexican musician, whose career peaked in the 1990s. “San Luis Potosí is mourning the departure of Adán López Dávila, composer of the group Los Acosta. We are very sorry for the loss of his family, friends, friends and fans. May he rest in peace,” the Potosino politician wrote on Twitter.
It included a message on behalf of that entity. “The Government of the State of San Luis Potosí deeply regrets the sensitive death of Adán López Dávila, composer and creator of all the successes of the spoiled group of Mexico, Los Acosta,” he added in an obituary published to accompany the message. “We express our sincerest condolences to his family and friends.”
