Description

With this 2011 stamp issuance, the U.S. Postal Ser­vice® honors five musicians & performers of the Latin sound whose contributions have had a lasting impact on American music — Tito Puente, Carmen Miranda, Selena, Carlos Gardel, & Celia Cruz. Among the distinctive musi­cal genres & styles represented are latin jazz, samba, tejano, tango, & salsa. For these stamps, artist Rafael Lopez, San Diego, Cali­fornia, painted semi-realistic portraits of each musical artist designed to evoke their personality, their vitality, & even their sound. He used a warm palette of colors — from bril­liant yellows, pinks, & lime green to rich shades of purple & blue — to suggest the flavor & energy these artists brought to their work. Each musician is depicted in mid-performance. Art Director Ethel Kessler says, "My goal was that when you see the stamp, you hear the music." (Forever stamps will always equal the first class rate.)
