La Santa Cecilia, KXCI Presents!
May 9 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm
La Santa Cecilia was recently nominated for a 2011 Latin Grammy for their hit song “La Negra” and is spreading this joy and excitement doing west coast tour support for L.A super house Ozomatli to close out the year!!!
“The music of the Los Angeles band La Santa Cecilia places the group in the late-20th-century movement of Latino musicians in California who search out a wider variety of traditions than their musical ancestors did to create a new pan-Latino aesthetic.” NPR
La Santa Cecilia exemplifies the modern-day creative hybrid. In an era and city in which Latin culture has given birth to many musical fusions, The Los Angeles based six-member band creatively combines up-tempo South American rhythms like Cumbia and Bossa Nova with the nostalgic Bolero and passionate Tango, blending in Afro-Cuban percussion, Rock with Jazzy tunes to bring about a mix that defies any particular label or musical genre. The band’s sound is accentuated by singer Marisoul’s haunting voice, which delivers its message of love, loss and heartbreak in a strong, sensual and powerful performance that leaves crowds mesmerized and women justified in La Santa’s colorful and fiesta-like live shows.
La Santa Cecilia solidifies its successes with its new EP titled “Noche y Citas”, which recently garnished a Latin Grammy nomination for the track “La Negra” produced by 4 time American GRAMMY® winner and 8 time Latin GRAMMY© Awards producer and engineer Sebastian Krys whose credits include a roster of Latin music’s super star recording artists such as: Carlos Vives, Luis Fonsi, Rabanes, Kinky, Ricky Martin and Shakira to name only a few.
