Babalu Love

Everybody loves Lucy, but it is relief to know that at least his daughter loved Desi, the man often cast in shadows by media historians infatuated by his more famous partner. Luci Arnaz, one of two children of the famous pair, is behind the musical tribute to her father, the man who brought the conga craze to 50s' America. "Babalu: The American Songbook Goes Latin — Featuring the Music of the Desi Arnaz Orchestra" may not make him a hero again to television fans, but it is an extraordinary tribute of the hero status he holds in his daughter's heart.
