La Santa Cecilia
Latin • 25m
La Santa Cecilia consists of accordionist and requintero Jose “Pepe” Carlos, bassist Alex Bendana, percussionist Miguel Ramirez, and lead vocalist La Marisoul, whose captivating voice sings about love, loss and heartbreak. Their influences range from Miles Davis to The Beatles, Zeppelin to Janis Joplin and Mercedes Sosa to Ramon Ayala. Their common love of music and openness to all genres led them to the concept of La Santa Cecilia in 2007 – named after the patron saint of musicians. In 2013, the band released their major label debut Treinta Dias (30 Days), which featured a captivating collaboration with fan Elvis Costello on “Losing Game.” The band visited the GRAMMY Museum in 2014, shortly after their GRAMMY win and one day after the release of their first full-length release, Someday New. The album featured seven new tracks, which include a heartfelt Spanglish rendition of The Beatles iconic “Strawberry Fields Forever,” plus the unforgettable Mexican classic "Como Dios Manda," as well as a fresh new radio-edit of “Monedita” and the full version of their moving, and militant “ICE – El Hielo.”
