The music fraternity and Kes the Band are in mourning today following the death of the band’s musical director and keyboardist Ricardo Rameshwar.

Rameshwar passed away this morning.

His sister, Janae Rameshwar, confirmed his passing to Loop News.

She said the musician suffered an asthma attack around 7 am this morning and was administered CPR at home when he lost consciousness.  He was rushed to the Westshore medical facility.

She said they were awaiting an autopsy on his body to confirm the cause of death.

Rameshwar, known fondly as Ricky Bobby, joined Kes the Band in 2012.

Prior to that, he spent 14 years working with Destra Garcia as the keyboardist for Atlantik and then as the musical director for her own band.
