Who was Carmen Salinas’ son?

Carmen Salinas and husband Pedro Plascencia Ramírez welcomed son Pedro Ernesto Plascencia Salinas on 7 November 1956, 11 months after they tied the knot.

Like his father, Pedro was a pianist. He later became known as Pedro Plascencia and followed in his father’s footsteps in becoming a composer.

According to his IMDb page, he composed music for telenovelas such as Cuna De Lobos, Más Allá Del Puente and Tenías Que Ser Tú, and films Gata Por Liebre and El Bulto.

Pedro died in April 1994 after battling cancer. Remembering her son on what would have been his 65th birthday this year, Carmen Salinas took to Instagram to share a series of posts in his honour:
