Musical Movie Fun!
"Musically Speaking:" free screening of Celia the Queen tonight at the Antenna Gallery (3718 St. Claude Ave.) at 7:00 pm - This inspiring documentary about Celia Cruz, the “Queen of Salsa,” tells the story of the little girl from Havana who became an international diva, bringing the sound of salsa music to the world. When she fled Castro's Cuba in 1960 and arrived in the U.S., she continued an already-successful career, fueled by her partnerships with salsa greats Tito Puente, Willie Colon, and Johnny Pacheco. Ironically, while she became known as the voice of Cuba around the world, her once beloved music was banned in her home country. Also featuring David Byrne, Quincy Jones, Gloria Estefan, Andy Garcia, Cachao, Wyclef Jean, and more.
MUSICALLY SPEAKING is a series of music-themed movie and documentary screenings, curated/hosted by DJ Soul Sister, and co-presented by Press Street, Charitable Film Network, WWOZ FM, and the N.O. African American Museum. Free admission and refreshments. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
