Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

SUPERANNO A celebration of salsa music chronicles the lives of more than forty salsa musical giants. Singers, musicians, and experts guide us around the spicy world of salsa in this educational, historic, entertaining, touching legacy from the musicians to their fans. Learn about the most important unifying element of the Hispanic culture--its music--in a departure from the more straight-laced, historical or musicological fare with more than 300 photographs.

Book News Annotation:

Aimed at the general reader and salsa lover, this compilation has approximately 300 color and b&w photographs of musicians alongside their stories about the music, culture, and business. In chapters based on interviews with photographer Kent, musicians and those in the industry discuss the definition of salsa, its history, and three seminal concerts during the 1970s. The majority of chapters are devoted to specific musicians and their lives and careers, for example, Rub<'e>n Blades, Celia Cruz, Oscar D'Le<'o>n, Marc Anthony, Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, and Gilberto Santa Rosa. The foreword is by musician and journalist Aurora Flores. A glossary is included.
