by | Read by Francisco Rivela

Spanish Audio • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Sin duda, Celia Cruz es una de las artistas más reconocidas en el mundo de la música Latina. Este audiolibro proporciona una mirada comprensiva en la vida de esta superestrella cubana. Francisco Rivela lee este libro hábilmente con sentimiento y sensibilidad. Domina los acentos cuando hay diálogo, y no falla cuando tiene que pronunciar el trabalenguas que son las letras de algunas de las canciones. La única cosa que quizás falte en este audio-biografía es la música. Mientras escuchan esta obra literaria y oyen los hechos sobre una cierta canción o un género musical, se encuentran con unas ganas de oír esa música en el mismísimo momento. Sin embargo, la escritura en sí es notable y la lectura igual. Así que, siendo aficionado de Celia Cruz o no, La Reina es la Rumba es un audiolibro excepcional que merece ser leído por cualquier lector. J.A.G., trans L.R.P.

[ENGLISH TRANSLATION]--Without a doubt, Celia Cruz is one of the most recognized artists in the world of Latin music. This audiobook provides a comprehensive look at the life of this Cuban superstar. Francisco Rivela narrates this audiobook skillfully, demonstrating his mastery of a variety of accents through dialogue and his ability to pronounce the often tongue-twisting lyrics of some of the songs. The only thing in this audio-biography that is missing is the music. While listening to this book and hearing about a specific song or musical genre, readers will find themselves yearning to hear the music as it is being described. However, this book is well written, and the narration is exceptional. For this reason, whether one is a fan of Celia Cruz or not, LA REINA ES LA RUMBA is a notable audiobook that can and deserves to be enjoyed by everyone.
