Pedro "Piquito" Marcano Papers, 1920-1972

Collection, MSS 61

Pedro Marcano was one of the foremost Puerto Rican bandleaders, composers, and vocalists of the 1930s and ‘40s in New York City. He was founder and director of the Cuarteto Marcano, one of the most popular bands of this time in the bolero style, which consists of soulful ballads dealing with the universal theme of love. Marcano worked closely with performers, such as Pedro Flores, Pedro Ortíz Dávila, Bobby Capó and Tito Rodríguez. The collection consists of documents such as flyers and newspaper clippings, as well as photographs of the musical figure, but also including other artists.
