Marisol “La Marisoul” Hernandez is the voice behind La Santa Cecilia, the charming local band that segues from cumbia, tangos and other traditional Latin-music styles into various strains of jazz, cabaret and pop. She is occasionally billed separately as La Marisoul, as she was at the Yoko Ono tribute at Disney Hall in March, when she turned in one of the most charismatic performances on a star-studded lineup. At the Soraya, she’s backed by members of La Santa Cecilia, California Feetwarmers and Los Texmaniacs for “Un Homenaje to Mexican-American Music From Lalo Guerrero to Today.” In addition to covering songs by Chicano-music visionary Guerrero, La Marisoul intends to put her captivating spin on tunes by Los Lobos and other Mexican-American songwriters. Plus, Deuto Dos Rosas.
