Tejano music legend Salomé Gutierrez passed away on Thursday (October 27).

The composer and founder of Del Bravo Record Shop in San Antonio was surrounded by his family when he died, according to Del Bravo Record Shop’s Facebook page.

“Today our father Salome Gutierrez R., Composer-Record Producer, founder of San Antonio Music Publishers, Del Bravo Record Shop & DLB Record Label passed away at home surrounded by his family.”

Gutierrez composed hundreds of songs and many were recorded by Tejano and Conjunto music legends. Flaco Jimenez, Valerio Longoria, and the “First Lady of Tejano” Lydia Mendoza were just a few that worked with Gutierrez. He started composing music at the age of 14.  In 1946, his first composed song “Corazon Aqui Te Quedas,” which was recorded by a music group.

San Antonio Music Publishers is one of the largest independent Latin catalogs and the largest publisher of Tejano music.

Tejano Nation sends our heartfelt condolences to the Gutierrez family and will have more details as they become available.
