The funeral of musician and lawyer Ilídio Macaringue, better known as Pinto, took place this Monday at Machava Bedene cemetery.
Pinto was vocalist and guitarist for the band Mozpipa, and started his musical career with the Mozambican Organisation ‘Continuadores’, where he was part of the children’s group ‘Pétalas Amarelas’.
Macaringue was a founding member of Mozpipa, which saw success in the 90s with hits like ‘Bia’ and ‘Progresso«. He also graduated in law and worked in the Institute of Legal Assistance and Sponsorship (IPAJ)
Macaringue leaves a widow and three young children.
Speaking at Monday’s ceremony, family and friends of the deceased said that Macaringue’s death left a great void not only in Mozpipa, but also in Mozambican culture.
In the space of just a month, Mozambican culture has witnessed the sudden deaths of rapper Lubengula, actress Graça Silva and singer and presenter Fabricio Sabat.Source: TVM / O País
