Cuban women have specifically known how to inspire, feel, enjoy and shed light on the music of this hot land. Although only a few of them have been publicly labeled “queens”, several women have actually shaken the realm of Cuban, Latin and international music.

The Queens of Cuban Music

Cuba is all about rhythm and melody. Its children carry the taste in their blood, and they exteriorize it with the gift featured by sensitive people when it comes to spreading their feelings by means of sounds. Cuban women have specifically known how to inspire, feel, enjoy and shed light on the music of this hot land. Although only a few of them have been publicly labeled “queens”, several women have actually shaken the realm of Cuban, Latin and international music.

From the self-assurance of La Lupe, Celia Cruz’s “Azu-car”, Celina Gonzalez’s tastiness, Olga Guillot’s elegance or the extraordinary timbre of Elena Burke, the history of Cuban music is made up of numerous stars that have used their heart and talent to immortalize it on the inter- national sphere. The melody of these divas of Cuban and international music has prevailed in different genres, even in some rhythms where men have traditionally played the leading role, such as guaguancó.

Celia Cruz, Queen of Salsa

She shared the stage with Benny More, Edith Piaf, Josephine Baker and Carmen Miranda, among other celebrities.

Elena Burke, Queen of Feeling in Cuba
