La Santa Cecilia
Their name pays homage to the patron saint of musicians.
Their sound: The Grammy winners don’t limit themselves when it comes to genres, instead blending seemingly disparate musical forms including bossa nova, klezmer, and good-ol’-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll.
Their influences are as diverse as the genres they fuse and include Janis Joplin, The Beatles, Mercedes Sosa, and Miles Davis.
Their latest: 2016’s Buenaventura, which includes the reggae-infused “Sacudo La Pereza” and the ranchera-rock track “Tragos de Amargo Licor,” a duet with Enrique Bunbury
Who they are: former students at community center Eastside Cafe who combined their love of traditional Mexican music with their passion for social justice issues
What that’s earned them: the title of Best Latin Alternative Band by LA Weekly
What OC Weekly says about them: “These dedicated community musicians have taken their unique interpretation of the centuries-old cultural tradition everywhere it stands to be heard.”
How BBC describes their creations: as “urgent, relevant music”
