Celia will always be a legend. She lived in Ft Lee, NJ.

The woman (interviewer) in the video (Giselle Blondet) is a NYRican who's been around since before me
and doesn't seem to age.

This is the homage of Celia Cruz that I watched with the Chilean Don Francisco.




The Puerto Rican La India sings with Celia Cruz.

I will always love her music. Her voice stirs something in my soul and I just have to dance. She was absolutely amazing!

In two of her songs Celia expressed a wish to die in Colombia...I went to the concert in homage to her in Cali, Colombia back in 2003. To this day its perhaps the best concert I ever attended, the sound system was amazing I could feel the reverberations throughout my body.




Before Salsa was even a thing she worked with the master Lucho Bermudez and his orquestral band of Cumbias, Porros & Merengues together with Matilde Diaz back in the 50's/60's.

This post is not meant to into crazy identity issues, but Celia Cruz was a woman of African descent who had major cultural impact across Latin America and among US Latinos. I feel that Latin America and especially Afro Latinos are discussed as if people were cutting entries out of encyclopedia. No one ever discusses people who had major cultural or political impact. Celia certainly had major cultural impact across the region, her songs were hits with young people even when she was in 80s.


I was once at the airport when she was arriving from Colombia. It looked as if she was the second coming of Jesus. This at a time when she was relative unknown (forgotten) by the English speaking markets. And I say "forgotten" as she was definitely part of that Palladium era when all ethnicities were involved in Afro Cuban musical genres, but less so when musical tastes changed in the 60s.


The beauty of NYC is that there are entire cultures existing side by side, sometimes oblivious to each other, growing without concern as to how the larger society views them.

Beware of the post-racial propaganda of the pan-plantation utopians.

Opportunity: Journal of Negro Life, Volumes 17-18: A Caribbean Dictator, p.383.

His skin tone is lighter, the source of much confusion, speculation and ugly rubbernecking. (Deadspin: SAMMY SOSA IS A TERRIFYING VAMPIRE.) Sosa professes not to care. “Look at what I am today,” he says, motioning a hand toward the opulence around him. “This is my life, and I don’t take garbage from nobody. I do whatever I want.”

Celia Cruz was definitely black.

Yet another black thread by black Americans. You guys have flooded this section with racial stuff, specially regarding the black race.
