Celia Cruz will forever be “La Reina De La Salsa” to her adoring fans and lives on today as the noble face and ambassador of Latin music across the globe. Now, a decade after her passing, Celia Cruz, The Queen of Salsa, is honored with a tribute that’s worthy of her legacy – The Absolute Collection – a journey, showcase and inside view of the personal and artistic life of the legendary and forever influential musical icon.
All of the songs in The Absolute Collection were carefully selected and represent every transcendent era of her career. The majority of the tracks are from the great and vast catalog of the legendary Fania Record label where Celia Cruz recorded the majority of her historic recordings. In addition, the audio has been meticulously re-mastered for the optimum audio experience.
Released via Sony Music Latin on July 30, The Absolute Collection includes 30 songs on two CDs, plus a 60-page book with over 70 photos and other memorabilia never previously published most of it from Celia Cruz’s personal collection. The best part? We are giving away a copy of Celia Cruz – The Absolute Collection to one of our lucky Austin Vida readers!
