BY OUR QUEEN OF SALSA OF ALL THE TIMES THE GUARACHERA DE CUBA
CELIA CRUZ, IT HAS THE BEST HITS BEFORE SHE PLAYED WITH TITO PUENTE AND
THE FANIA ALL STARS LATER ON.
THIS CD WAS RECORDED IN THE FIFTIES WHEN SHE WAS STILL IN CUBA, SOME OF THE
TRACKS ARE WITH THE LEGENDARY ORCHESTRA LA SONORA MATANCERA.
CAN YOU CONCEIVE A HISTORY OF THE PORTUGUESE FADO WITHOUT MENTIONING
AMALIA RODRIGUES?, CAN YOU CONCEIVE A HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN MUSIC
WITHOUT FRANK SINATRA, ELVIS PRESLEY OR THE DISCO FEVER OF THE LATE SEVENTIES?;
WELL I HAVE NEWS FOR YOU , IN 1960 (THE YEAR OF MY BIRTH), CELIA CRUZ LEFT CUBA
BECAUSE OF THE COMMUNIST REGIME AS A RESULT SHE WAS EXCISED FROM THE CUBAN
MUSIC HISTORY, HER MUSIC WAS BANNED AS IF SHE NEVER EXISTED , AND MY GENERATION
WHO GREW UP IN CUBA DID NOT KNOWN ABOUT HER (I KNEW BECAUSE I GREW UP IN VENEZUELA),
ONLY WHEN THEY LEFT THE ISLAND THEY KNEW HER; SHE WAS EVEN FORBIDDEN TO ENTER CUBA
TO ATTEND HER MOTHER'S FUNERAL , AND FINALLY TO ADD MORE INJURY IN 2003 WHEN SHE DIED
THE GRANMA NEWSPAPER OR I RATHER SAID THAT PIECE OF GARABAGE SPILLED ALL ITS VENOM
AGAINST HER, BECAUSE THE REDS ARE EVIL AND GODLESS THEY DONT HAVE RESPECT FOR ANYBODY
EVEN FOR THE DEAD.
BACK TO MUSIC THIS CD IS A TRULY REPRESENTATION OF OUR OLD CUBA, AND EVEN THOUGH SHE IS
NO LONGER WITH US HER MUSIC IS UNFORGETTABLE AND WILL LIVE FOR EVER.
