It's a sad day for Dominican Entertainment. I remember as a child watching this talented genious sing and dance en el "Combo Show de Johnny Ventura". Later in his career he became a tremendous comedian. You will be missed Luisito, but you sure are going to make the angels laugh. RIP "Balbuena"!!!

RIP Luisito Marti aka "Balbuena".

When I used to live in the DR, I remember seeing him in a show he hosted that was called "De Remate" along with some other people.
