Huguito Flores, born on November 1, 1965, in Campo Gallo, Santiago del Estero, was a celebrated Argentine singer who made a significant mark in the world of tropical music with the infectious rhythms of guaracha, a popular genre from the northern region of the country. Although he initially ventured into folklore, he later fully embraced cumbia, a genre that became his musical passion.
In the 1990s, Huguito established his first musical ensemble, known as Fenyxs. However, in 2003, he received an enticing offer to join another group, El Super Quinteto. Subsequently, the band underwent name changes, becoming El Super in 2005 and then evolving into El Super de Oro in 2007.
After contributing to more than a dozen albums with the group, Huguito ventured into a solo career in 2017. His debut solo album, “Te sigo enamorando,” was launched in 2020 and achieved both Gold and Platinum status.
Huguito’s music resonated deeply with a broad fanbase. His YouTube channel boasted 182 thousand subscribers, with his songs “Manos de Tijera” and “Te hubieras ido antes” amassing 35 million and 28 million views, respectively.
Tragically, on September 21, 2023, Huguito Flores met with a fatal car accident on Route 34. The accident claimed the lives of his wife, Carina Soledad Enríquez, and his brother-in-law, Rubén Horacio Enríquez. Fortunately, their three-year-old daughter survived the crash and is presently hospitalized with a guarded prognosis.
Huguito Flores’ invaluable contributions to tropical music and his vibrant guaracha rhythms will forever resonate with fans across the globe. His musical legacy will endure and continue to captivate audiences worldwide.
