La Santa Cecilia Details

La Santa Cecilia

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, Led 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.” Now, just after their GRAMMYwin for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album, the band presents their new album Someday New.

So my response to that was… shut up shop.' Jamie Alexander Treays reclines in his scruffy East London studio, and grins. What hasn't changed [more]
