Antonio Machín

Antonio Machín (Antonio Abad Lugo Machín; 11 February 1903, in Sagua la Grande, Cuba – 4 August 1977, in Madrid) was a Cuban singer and musician. His version of El Manisero, recorded in New York, 1930, with Don Azpiazú's orchestra, was the first million record seller for a Cuban artist. Although this was labelled a rhumba, it was in reality a son pregón, namely, a song based on a street-seller's cry.
