Joe Arroyo, one of Colombia’s greatest salsa performers, has been re-hospitalized with a pulmonary edema and a kidney infection, local media reported Wednesday.
The singer was newly admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the La Asuncion clinic in Barranquilla — on the north Caribbean Coast — on Monday, after his health failed for the second time in two months.
In May, Arroyo was hospitalized after suffering a cardiorespiratory arrest. By the end of May, the singer was back to health, and in mid-June gave a performance in Bogota.
The salsa master is reportedly stable, calm and breathing on his own.
Arroyo has enjoyed a highly successful career of over 40 years, and is most famous for songs including “Tania,” “La rebelion” and “A mi dios todo le debo.”
