A TRIBUTE TO ONE OF THE MOST TIMELESS ARTISTS OF THE LAST CENTURY
Miami, FL (October 20, 2013)– For over 50 years, Celia Cruz remained eternally young and prolific, a pioneer of new sounds that were always brimming with the spirit of her native Cuba. From “Yerberito Moderno” to “La Guarachera,” from “Dulce Habanera” to “La Negra Tiene Tumbao,” Celia Cruz evoked the Caribbean with all of her music and shared it with the world, decade after decade.
Now, Sony Music Latin pays tribute to this innovative legend with a project that’s pioneering as well. It’s the first iBook ever released by Sony Music Latin, and the first to feature a Latin artist: Celia Cruz – The Lady, The Legend, Her Legacy.
