Named for the patron saint of musicians, La Santa Cecilia consists of accordionist and requintero Jose “Pepe” Carlos, bassist Alex Bendana, percussionist Miguel Ramirez, and lead vocalist La Marisoul. Widely embraced by critics and an ever-growing legion of fans as musical ambassadors of Los Angeles’ young bicultural population, La Santa Cecilia recently saw their album “Treinta Dias” win this year’s GRAMMY Award for “Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album” and named one of the best releases of 2013 by NPR, iTunes and more.
Now, fresh off their Grammy dedication to “the more than 11 million undocumented people that live & work hard in this country,” La Santa Cecilia will launch their brand new album “Someday New” this coming Tuesday, March 4th. “Someday New” features seven tracks, which include a heartfelt Spanglish rendition of The Beatles’ iconic “Strawberry Fields Forever”, the unforgettable Mexican classic “Como Dios Manda“, and the distinctively danceable new single “Cumbia Morada.”
“Terra Live Music in Studio” will offer La Santa Cecilia the opportunity to connect and engage with their fans in the United States, and to share with them an unforgettable journey through a bold fusion of new sounds fully immersed in modern music and also paying homage to the rich traditions of their Mexican heritage.

About La Santa Cecilia
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. Their influences range from Miles Davis to The Beatles, Led Zeppelin to Janis Joplin and Mercedes Sosa to Ramon Ayala. Their common love of music and openness to all genres led them to the concept of La Santa Cecilia in 2007 – named after the patron saint of musicians. In 2013, the band released their major label debut Treinta Dias (30 Days), which featured a captivating collaboration with fan Elvis Costello on “Losing Game.” Now, just after their GRAMMY win for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album, the band presents their new album Someday New. The album features seven new tracks, which include a heartfelt Spanglish rendition of The Beatles iconic “Strawberry Fields Forever”, plus the unforgettable Mexican classic “Como Dios Manda”; as well as a fresh new radio-edit of “Monedita” and the full version of their moving, and militant “ICE – El Hielo.”
