Celia

Piece description from the artist

This much applauded singer with a powerhouse voice and flare for extravagant costumes, jewelry and hair, was a national treasure in Cuba until her political opinion caught the eye of Fidel Castro who did not appreciate her contrasting philosophy. Fleeing the scrutiny of Castro she escaped to make her home in Mexico. Yet she was never at peace in her adopted country, although Mexicans embraced her as one of their own. Ceila's family had to remain in Cuba and they were subjected to harsh treatments. Celia was an international star, a true diva who was invited to perform in many countries, including the United States.
