We’re talking about different ways to ‘SPICE UP’ your diabetes life with musical inspiration from the ‘Queen of Salsa’, Celia Cruz.
Celia Cruz was one of the most accomplished singers of the 20th century. She was known for her powerful voice and her rhythm-centric musical style. Hailing from humble beginnings in the poor neighborhood of Santos Suarez in Havana, Cuba, her mother knew immediately that she was destined to be a singer.
Celia Cruz’s late husband, Pedro Knight, a former lead trumpet player for Cuba’s legendary band La Sonora Matancera, suffered from complications of type 2 diabetes and had a series of strokes before his death.
Guests include Poet Lorraine Brooks, Best-Selling Cookbook Author (Eating Well Through Cancer Cookbook – Spanish Edition), Holly Clegg, Constance Brown-Riggs MSEd, RD, CDE, CDN, the Charlie’s Angels of Outreach and Mama Rose Marie.
Throughout the podcast we will be playing music from Celia Cruz’s The Absolute Collection courtesy of SONY Music. Beautifully and wonderfully designed, The Absolute Collection contains her all time classic hits remastered, extensive liner notes, and brand-new commentary from prominent artists of today. All of the songs were carefully selected and represent every transcendent era of her career. The majority of the tracks are from the great and vast catalog of the legendary Fania Records label where Celia Cruz recorded the majority of her historic recordings.
