LA SANTA CECILIA
An "Our American Music" Festival Special Concert
La Santa Cecilia is:
La Marisoul, vocals
Jose “Pepe” Carlos, accordion and requinto
Alex Bendaña, bass
Miguel “Oso” Ramirez, percussion and vocalist
La Santa Cecilia started their career by serenading passersby on the embellished corners of Downtown Los Angeles’ Olvera Street. They are a musical phenomenon which plays a blend of cumbia, bossa nova and boleros. They have won a Grammy®, toured from coast to coast, collaborated with Elvis Costello, appeared on Conan and most recently shared the stage with Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones.
Singing about love, loss and disappointment, the band has become the voice of a new bicultural generation in the United States, fully immersed in modern music, but still close to their Latin American influences and Mexican heritage.
Note: The San Diego Symphony Orchestra does not appear on this program. $25-$40.
