La Santa Cecilia 2017
November 10th, 2017
Music beyond borders
La Santa Cecilia started their career by serenading passersby on Los Angeles’ historic Olvera Street. Today, they’ve won a Grammy, toured from coast to coast, and collaborated with legends, including Elvis Costello and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones. Named for the patron saint of music, La Santa Cecilia performs a passionate, high-energy mix of original material, traditionals, and covers in Spanish and English. Vocalist Marisol Hernández, known as La Marisoul, has a voice that will stop you in your tracks. With songs of love, loss, and everyday struggles, La Santa Cecilia has given a soundtrack to a bicultural generation, rising to fame with the anthem “El Hielo,” about the struggle of undocumented immigrants. Vamos to this modern-day creative hybrid of Latin culture, rock, and world music.
La Santa Cecilia is presented by Anchorage Concert Association.
