La Santa Cecilia

To many fans in the local scene, it was no surprise that La Santa Cecilia won a Grammy Award this year for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album for their fourth full-length release, Treinta Días. The award’s clunky name barely hints at the many genres the L.A. band freely traverses, including cumbia, tango, rock, rumba, jazz and even klezmer. No matter which style the band cooks up behind her, vocalist Marisol Hernandez always belts out her fiery pleas with a radiant charisma. Most of the group’s tunes are pumped up by Jose Carlos’ accordion and Miguel Ramirez’s clattering percussion and spiced with judicious amounts of Marco Sandoval’s slinky guitar. Even with so many mesmerizing originals, La Santa Cecilia continue to surprise with imaginative covers, such as their languidly tropical makeover of “Strawberry Fields Forever.”
