Arturo Cavero Velásquez (29 November 1940 - Lima, Peru, 9 October 2009), better known by the pseudonym "Zambo Cavero", was a virtuoso Afro-Peruvian singer, representative of Afro-Peruvian identity.
Born in Lima, Peru, he was the son of Juan Cavero, of Huaral, and Digna Velásquez, of Cañete. His particular singing style captivated listeners, as his intensity had the feel of Peruvian creole taste. Zambo Cavero specialised in performing traditional Peruvian waltz. Some of his best performances are songs by Peruvian composer Augusto Polo Campos, other are renditions of traditional Peruvian creole music, which is Afro-Peruvian influenced. On June 3, 1987 Cavero, was honoured together with important Peruvian musicians like guitar player Óscar Avilés in Washington, D. C. by the Organization of American States.
