Biography by Craig Harris. Cuban exile whose impassioned songs oozed nostalgia for the natural beauty of her homeland, earning her title "Queen of Salsa.
Celia Cruz was not only a witness to the evolution of Latin music in the United States, she was the embodiment of it. The world lost the tropical music queen 15 years ago, but she lives on in these unforgettable songs. Celia Cruz’s star quickly rose on stage and screen in Cuba after the fledging singer joined La Sonora Matancera, a band whose members included her future husband Pedro Knight, in 1950. Here she sings Juancito Trucupey on Cuban TV in 1956. Guantanamera" became a standard of Cruz’s repertoire after she left Cuba for Mexico in 1960, and subsequently moved to the United States. Her version of the song, based on Cuban icon Jose Marti’s poetry and made famous internationally by Pete Seeger was released on the 1967 album Bravo Celia Cruz, recorded with La Sonora.
Celia Cruz, hailed as the Queen of Salsa, was one of the most successful Latin entertainers of the 20th century. A vibrant, tireless performer, she won over generations of listeners with her unique voice and inimitable personality. She remains a beloved figure, an icon of Latin culture. Xiomara originated the role of Celia Cruz in the Off-Broadway musical Celia: the Musical. Lucrecia is one of the most versatile Latin female vocalists working today, whose performances are characterized by her intensity and high energy in the tropical genre, and her refined musicality in her interpretations of boleros and jazz. Her range encompasses a wide spectrum including Latin, jazz, pop, and electronic music. Her latest internationally acclaimed release Album de Cuba recreates the golden age of Cuban music.
