La Santa Cecilia release their new single “Monedita”,
co-written with Claudia Brant and produced bySebastian Krys.
The Band Concludes a Successful East Coast Run of Shows in the USA, supporting Jesse & Joy.
“Fronted by the charismatic and joyously eccentric singer La Marisoul, Los Angeles-based Santa Cecelia is blending the melodic richness and thudding rhythms of Mexican regional music with blues, rock and a punchy energy reminiscent of zany ’80s punk-pop. …the passionate Marisoul showed off her heart-ripping ranchera diva/Janis Joplin-esque voice in powerhouse ballads like Falling. She and accordionist Jose “Pepe” Carlos have terrific chemistry, shimmying back and forth on the rollicking Monedita (about how money can’t buy happiness), his accordion weaving rhythmic and harmonic patterns around her voice. Bassist Alex Bendana played a funky, thudding backbeat that evoked norteño-style brass.Santa Cecelia showed its fun-loving streak in a cover of Soft Cell’s Tainted Love, and was heartbreakingly sincere on ICE (El Hielo), its ballad about the injustices of deportation and the immigration system.” – Miami Herald
