The book also features artists such as the Gipsy Kings, Gloria Estefan, Hugh Masakela, and Miriam Makeba, whose music has become part of the mainstream while managing to stay true to its roots. These open and honest self-portraits will give music fans a greater appreciation of what is behind these sounds, the suffering these artists have endured, and the triumphs they have enjoyed."--BOOK JACKET."
