Pablo Beltran Ruiz R.I.P.

The Sociedade de Autores y Compositors de Mexico, the Spanish affiliate to ASCAP, is reporting the passing of their member, bandleader and composer Pablo Beltran Ruiz, at age 93. Pablo Beltran Ruiz was little known outside of his native country. The same could have been said of his work, had it not been for a piece of music he composed 55 years ago. Originally written as a cha cha, "Quien Sera" was recorded by Pablo Beltran Ruiz and his orchestra in 1953.
