Celia Cruz - The Rough Guide To Celia Cruz mp3 album
rsula Hilaria Celia de la Caridad Cruz Alfonso (October 21, 1925 – July 16, 2003) was a Cuban singer and the most popular Latin artist of the 20th century. She was renowned internationally as the "Queen of Salsa", "La Guarachera de Cuba", as well as "The Queen of Latin Music". Throughout her career, Celia Cruz interpreted and internationally popularized tropical rhythms such as Son, Guaguancó, Rumba, Guaracha and Bolero. However, the genre that led to stardom was Salsa.
Celia Cruz was the undisputed Queen of Salsa, and when she died in 2003, after a career spanning nearly seven decades, she left Latin music without a figurehead. Her career began in 1930s Havana and, in 1960, she moved to New York and became a central attraction at Fania Records the Motown of Latin music and powerhouse of salsa. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Celias recordings with percussionist and bandleader Tito Puente (the King to her Queen) and producers Johnny Pacheco and Ray Barretto won streams of awards
This distinctive compilation covers ample ground as it motors through the Fania era. Johnny Pacheco, Ray Barretto and Tito Puente take a bow, without attempting to upstage that granite-like voice. Dancers have plenty of choices here, but it’s worth waiting for the frenetic brass riffs to subside as Cruz puts aside the glitz to strike a languid, countrified pose on the ineffably nostalgic Cuando salí de Cuba.

CELIA CRUZ is a afro-cuban jazz music artist. 21, 1924-July 16, 2003 was a Cuban salsa singer who spent most of her career living in New Jersey, and working in the United States and several Latin American countries. Cruz was one of the most successful Cuban performers of the 20th century, with twenty-three gold albums to her name and has earned the moniker of the "Queen of Salsa".
Celia Cruz’s career had spanned more than half a century when she died on July 16, 2003, at age 77. Her popular nickname, the Queen of Salsa, was something of a misnomer; Cruz reigned not only as the female star of 1970s New York’s Latino immigrant music scene, but as an essential artist whose voice transmitted both the sacred sound of timeless Afro-Cuban music and the swing of Cuba’s Pre-Revolutionary big band era. More than a witness to the evolution of Latin music in the United States, she was the embodiment of it. A crossover pioneer, she kept on making hits and breaking ground as a seni.
