A piece of extraordinary value and symbolism, a one of a kind work of art depicting the joy, music and vibrant sounds of the carnival across different Hispanic cultures. Capturing the splendor and traditions of Puerto Rico, the vegigantes, the congas, and the great mask in the Brazilian carnival, the Mayan masks and the hand cut papers of Mexican tradition. Colombia with El Desfile de Silleteros and their incredible floral arrangements, the traditional carriel, a hand bagthat is centerpiece of the paisa attire. The Caribbean Batá drums inherited from Africa. Venezuela with the festivities of El Carnaval de Blancos y Negros and in center of the piece our dear and beloved “Celia Cruz, “La Reina del Guaguancó”, the pinnacle and legendary face of Cuban music bringing all of us together.
