The Hollywood Bowl is taking a cue from the recent surge in public interest in all things Cuban. A special tribute honoring salsa queen Celia Cruz will take place at the Hollywood Bowl this summer, featuring Cuban artists like Gente de Zona and Pedrito Martinez, and Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Angélique Kidjo.
The Latin Grammy-winning duo and Kidjo will headline the concert. The Pedrito Martinez Group, whose Habana Dreams album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Tropical Albums chart last June, will be the opening act during the summer concert taking place Aug. 9.
