PAUL BENAVIDEZ wrote: “It is with great sadness to report that our fearless leader, Arcelio Malo Garcia passed away yesterday with his wife Elsa by his side. His death was of natural causes and is not COVID-19 related. He told Elsa to let everyone know that he loves his fans and that if it wasn’t for them that Malo wouldn’t be where it is and he loved playing for his fans and it was his fans that kept him going for so long. He also wanted to let everyone know that he fought as long as he could, but he was tired and just wants peace. At this time, his wife and family are in mourning and have asked that no phone calls be made to his wife for now. I will post more information as I receive it. It is Arcelio’s wish that his current Malo band who has been with him for the past 3 decades carry on his music and legacy. He’s been telling me this for the past 2 years. We will do our best to carry out his legacy and continue to perform his music for Malo fans.”
Our sincere condolences to his family, friends, fans, and his Malo family.
Rest In Peace Arcelio “MALO” Garcia Thank You for the Beautiful Music , I was blessed to see him perform live many times when I was young man ,through the years and up close and personal just a few months ago at the Chicano Legends Concert . Always closed out his show with #Sauvecito the crowd would always go wild as the men would hold on to their old ladies and sing along. Rest In Peace Brother.🙏🏼 #malo #nena #chicano #chicanosoul #allstar #artlaboe #chicanolegendsconcert

Earlier today I found out Arcelio Garcia of the super group Malo passed away. He was a client, a friend and in many ways, a mentor. I have known Arcelio since I was a kid having crossed paths with him on numerous Tierra gigs. He was tough, smart, loyal and he lived and breathed Malo until the end. In recent years my wife Daphne Salas Puente got very close to Arcelio and his incredible wife Elsa. We were always excited to hang out with Arcelio and Elsa at numerous oldies shows. I am honored to have played a role in protecting the Malo trademark for him and to have help him recover royalties he never knew existed. He will be missed in a big way… 🙁 #Suavecito #MALO #RIP
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as family statement on the death is yet to be released.
