Angélique Kidjo reflects on an icon of the Americas, celebrated salsa singer Celia Cruz. Over ten tracks, Kidjo's album Celia divests itself of the glamour to investigate the African roots of the Cuban-born woman who became the "Queen" of salsa, a music genre invented in New York by Caribbean immigrants. The album features musical assistance from Tony Allen, Meshell Ndegeocello, David Donatien, Shabaka Hutchings and Sons Of Kemet And The Gangbé Brass Band.
