Possessed with a remarkable voice and a flair for fashion, Celia Cruz was an artist who brought the music of her native Cuba to millions of people around the world for six decades until her death in 2003. Recently, the National Museum of American History created this well-done online exhibit to complement an in situ exhibit that is in place until the end of 2005. The site offers three primary sections, including one that offers information about Cruz' life (complete with rarely seen family photographs), and another that discusses her music. In the music section, visitors can view her album covers, listen to some of her songs, and view some archival video clips of Cruz and her colleagues in performance. Appropriately enough, the site is also available in a Spanish version.
