Cecilia Noel – Havana Rocks (Compass)

Cecilia Noel_smThis powerful Peruvian vocalist (now living in L.A.) performs with passion & intensity; hence her nickname, the “Nine Inch Nails of salsa.” So why is she singing admittedly well-arranged Latin-style covers of old American super hits (in English)? Beats me… Recorded with all Cuban musicians in Havana Cuba “with special permission from the US Government.”
