The “Godfather” of New Mexico Music, “Al Hurricane”, dies at 81
Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA – If you’ve lived in New Mexico in the past 50 years, most likely you’ve heard a song or two by Al Hurricane. Forging his legacy in New Mexico for over 5 decades, Al Hurricane has earned his place in our music history. Late Sunday Night, Al Hurricane lost his battle with prostate cancer and will forever live in the hearts of New Mexicans that his musical extasy had touched.
He was known for his melodic New Mexico Spanish folk style music and the songs he created will be relived for years to come. His son, Al Hurricane Jr. carries on his legacy.
