The Levitt Foundation is proud to present La Santa Cecilia as the headlining artist for the 2023 Levitt National Tour. A Los Angeles institution, the GRAMMY-winning band combines elements of cumbia, rock, bolero, bossa nova, jazz, tango, and ranchera into an electrifying and unmistakable signature style. Named after the patron saint of music, La Santa Cecilia is comprised of singer Marisol “La Marisoul” Hernandez, accordionist and requinto player Jose “Pepe” Carlos, bassist Alex Bendaña, and percussionist Miguel “Oso” Ramirez. Formed 15 years ago, the group got its start performing on L.A.’s historic Olvera Street, and soon began captivating audiences across the world with a soulful, high-energy blend of both Latin and American musical traditions, reflecting its members’ bilingual, multicultural identities.
La Santa Cecilia has collaborated with everyone from Los Lobos and Pepe Aguilar to Elvis Costello and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones, as well as recorded songs for films such as Cantinflas, The Book of Life, and Pixar’s Oscar-winning Coco. Having performed at storied venues like the Hollywood Bowl, the Walt Disney Concert Hall and Kennedy Center, La Santa Cecilia have also made their name as a fan favorite on Levitt stages. lasantacecilia.com
