About Moisés Simmons
Moises Simons (b. Havana 24 August 1905 -- d. Madrid 28 June 1945)
The lyrics and piano arrangement of El Manisero were by the son of a Basque musician, Moises Simons. El Manisero (The Peanut Vendor) is a popular Cuban song in the style of a street-seller, known as a son pregón. On the label it was called a rumba, a clear misnomer, but easy to say and remember. In those days the term 'rumba' was used as a general label for Cuban music, as 'salsa' is today, because the Cuban terms did not travel well abroad
