Originating from the City of Angels in 2007, LA SANTA CECILIA takes inspiration from all over the world, utilizing Pan-American rhythms like Cumbia, Bossa Nova, Rumba, Bolero, Tango Jazz, Rock and Klezmer music. With influences that range from Miles Davis to the Beatles, Led Zeppelin to Janis Joplin and Mercedes Sosa to Ramon Ayala, LA SANTA CECILIA exemplifies the modern-day creative hybrid of Latin culture, rock and world music.

Known for their activism on immigration reform, the group’s unique sound pays homage to the rich traditions of their Mexican heritage. Named after the patron saint of music and musicians, 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. The experience of the group’s energetic, passionate performance continues to leave fans and new listeners mesmerized.
