Despite being despised by most residents of South Florida and Union City N.J., Juan Almeida Bosque having been the Commander of The Cuban Armed Forces was also a music composer/writer.
While not at all as "hip" as composers 'Gonzalo Asencio' ("Tio Tom"), Bienvenido Julián Gutiérrez, Arsenio Rodríguez, Ignacio Piñeiro, María Teresa Vera, Ñico Saquito or Faustino Oramas Osorío ("El Guayabero"), Juan Almeida Bosque is said to have composed more than 300 songs, many of them boleros.
