El Cumbanchero, is also known as “Rockfort Rock” or “Comanchero” and it is the biggest rumba that Puerto Rico has given us. It was composed by one of the most important musical icons of this country, Rafael Hernandez (1891-1965), which earned him the Award for Artistic Merit by President John F. Kennedy, who greeted Hernandez into the White House with the famous phrase: “Welcome Mister Cumbanchero”.
