Tite Curet Alonso

Tite Curet Alonso - Latin music composer

Tite Curet Alonso has no peer in Latin music when it comes to the sheer volume of songs composed which have gone on to become mainstays in the genre. He covered all the styles from salsa, boleros, folk, Spanish trio music, popular, and the Puerto Rican African roots rhythms of bomba and plena.

Catalino “Tite” Curet Alonso, was born on 12 Febuary 1926 in the Barrio Hoyo Inglés in the city of Guayama and raised in the Barrio Obrero section of Santurce. His father was a Spanish teacher and a musician with the orchestra of Simón Madera.

In 1968 he began his career as a professional songwriter with the song La Tirana, a tune recorded by Lupe Victoria Yoli, better known “La Lupe”. La Lupe brought international fame to the song and Curet went on to become an internationally respected composer, musicologist, and journalist.
