Basilio Repilado (4 March 1944 in Havana – 4 December 2012 in Havana) was a Cuban musician.[1][2] He is mainly notable as one of the five sons of Compay Segundo, seeking to expand on and promote his father's musical legacy.[3] He joined his father's band, Compay Segundo y Sus Muchachos, in 1999 as a backing vocalist and percussionist. On Compay Segundo's Duets album they recorded together a version of "Linda Graciela" that Billboard, counted "an exercise in understated beauty and excellent ensemble work" and one of the highlights of the album.[4] He is also known in Havana as an intense Beatles fan, promoting Beatles tributes.[5]
