The Rough Guide to Salsa Divas


For all the driving rhythms and weaving horn lines, it is the divas that define salsa's wild and free spirit. Dance the night away with salsa from the original revolutionaries Celia Cruz and La Lupe to the twenty-first century innovators Albita and Yoko. Featuring the iconic Celia Cruz, as well as her key contemporaries from the 1970s, whilst also highlighting today's Salsa Divas and inspiring young talent. Focusing on the key innovators who are changing the gender equalities of previous eras. This collection also follows on from the immense success of other salsa titles in the Rough Guide series including 'The Rough Guide to Salsa Dance'. 'The Rough Guide to Salsa Divas' is accompanied by a FREE bonus CD by Yoko, our favourite source album. This delivers great value and encourages further exploration of salsa music. Dubbed 'La Japonesa Salsera', Yoko Mimata is making waves and turning heads with her blistering brand of salsa dura. A native of Osaka but living and performing in New York, Yoko majored in Spanish language studies and sings salsa with authenticity, power and joy. Her commanding presence, combined with smoking arrangements and masterful playing by some of the most talented musicians in the genre make this album a true scorcher. 'La Japonesa Salsera' is lighting up the salsa world.
