Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
At this point in Celia Cruz's 40-plus year career--over 20 Gold albums; collaborations with salsa greats Johnny Pacheco, Willie Colon, Tito Puente, and the Fania All-Stars; and countless awards--you would expect the Queen of Afro-Cuban music to run out of ideas and song titles, let alone steam! Yet, this indefatigable grandma, who counts among her living legend peers American jazz orishas Aretha and Sarah, remains an inexhaustible fount of some of the most luscious sounds to rock this planet. Cruz's party verve still rages feverishly high, that butter-scotch voice is as rich and emotive as ever, and she still rides those vocals just as smoothly over this set's sizzling Latin jams, produced by the excellent Ralph Mercado and played by a stellar crew of salsa-meisters. The title of evergreen Cruz's latest jolt of pure central nervous system stimulation says it all: In English, it means, "My Life Is To Sing." --Elena Oumano

"It is definetly one of the best albums I ever herd. Not that this comes with a suprice. She definetly deserves her title. Even if you are not a salsa fan it is that kind of music everybody can enjoy. I recently seen her and Jose Alberto in a concert and hearing La vida es un carneval live was something I will never forget. ASUCAR...."

A tribute to our dear Celia Cruz

"This is another tremendous album by the late Celia Cruz- la guarachera del mundo. As usual this album is nothing but excellence and a true representation of Celia's spririt and philosophy about life- la vida es un carnaval y hay que vivirla cantando. Her tremendous talent, charisma, professionalism and vivacious nature kept the world dancing for fifty years and will keep the world dancing for fifty more years thanks to this tremendous album (and all the others). The international hit on this album is "la vida es un carnaval" but all are tremendous and once again Celia shows her diversity by including other rhythms- a merengue (a duet with Kinito Mendez) and a bolero that is just so sentimental and so Celia Cruz. This album is her first production with Sony discos and I assure you the new style, sound and energy are just so typical of "la guarachera". I can't express this anymore clearly. This is a production that is platinum and will defintely keep Celia in our hearts for ever. I cheerish her music and will keep dancing in the name of this tremendous singer of tropical music. Celia is truly a "reina"."
