Artist and musician King Nando, who helped popularize boogaloo in the '60s and '70s, has died. He was 62. The artist born Fernando Rivera died in his sleep Saturday (Feb. 2), according to a spokesperson for his former manager Richie Bonilla.

The boogaloo movement combined Latin percussion with R&B; Rivera scored a hit in the mid-'60s with the song "Fortuna."

Rivera is survived by five sons and his life companion Iris Soto. A viewing was scheduled for Tuesday at New York City's Ortiz Funeral Home.
