In a note sent to ANGOP due to the death of the artist on the 25th of July, whose remains were buried on Saturday, 28, the Ministerial Department advances that Tony Caetano, author of several intervention themes that marked the decades of 60 and 70 , was notably one of the exponents of the Angolan music of his time.

"His physical disappearance recorded in the Angolan cultural mosaic an enormous loss of immeasurable dimension, both for the irreverent themes addressed in his musical works, as well as his uniqueness of acting on stage," reads the note.

In the note signed by the director of the department, Carolina Cerqueira, reads that his works, his deeds, will last in the memories and hearts of Angolans and lovers of Angolan culture.

Tony Caetano has a vinyl record, recorded in 1972. His repertoire includes songs such as "Pange Iami", "Mena", "Divua" and "Hungo".

Born in Luanda in 1952, the musician began in the 70s as a percussionist of a Luanda group, having subsequently opted for a solo career, debuting in the Kutonoca program, directed by Luís Montez.
