“Since La Marisoul and I traded Spanish and English verses on ‘Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood’ at the Wiltern Theatre, a year ago, I hoped that we might have a chance to sing together again. So I was delighted to be asked to write a few lines for the song, ‘Losing Game’ and trade lines and harmonise with La Marisoul again. In the midst of power and joy in these new recordings of La Santa Cecilia, I also feel one of the best cuts you will hear this year is ‘ El Hielo’ – a sympathetic and seductive argument of a song.” – ELVIS COSTELLO
The young members of La Santa Cecilia are immigrants, the children of immigrants and dreamers. The Los Angeles based band that takes their name from the patron saint of music is the epitome of our new bi-cultural generation-fully immersed in the modern music and art of the country they have called home from their youngest days, while adventurously fusing together a new sound that also pays homage to the rich traditions of their Mexican heritage. Fronted by the distinctively strong voice of La Marisoul, the often irreverent, but always artistically driven band literally developed their musical style and performance capability from the streets of Los Angeles. The group that started by playing for tourists on the city’s famed Olvera street, now has become a leading bi-lingual voice for music fans across the city – with sold-out club dates, a Latin Grammy nomination already to their credit, a creative partnership with the innovative multiple GRAMMY and LATIN GRAMMY winning producer Sebastian Krys, and now a just signed major-label record deal with Universal.
Now La Santa Cecilia plan to unveil their forthcoming album “TREINTA DIAS” (Thirty Days) on April 30th, just in time to infuse nationwide Cinco de Mayo playlists with a more authentic, yet uniquely modern fusion of Mexican culture and second-generation American music. Album highlights are sure to include new single“El Hielo” (ICE) – a powerful narrative inspired by the experiences of their very own families, and millions more in their community that work toward a better future for themselves and their children, while fearing the separation from loved ones that can still happen in an instant. Music fans across cultural and geographic divides are also sure to be drawn to both the captivating soul vocal of “Falling” and “Losing Game”–which finds LSC collaborating with very special guest Elvis Costello.
“The Best Latin Alternative Band of 2012 – If there is one band that represents the multicultural mix of Los Angeles, it’s La Santa Cecilia. … their hybrid of Latin, rock and world music has caught the attention of groups like Cafe Tacuba, Ozomatli and Los Lobos, all of whom have had La Santa Cecilia open shows for them this year. Anyone who has attended their concerts can attest that lead singer La Marisoul has one of the most powerful voices, in any genre”
