LA-based La Santa Cecilia, referred to as a “Los Angeles melting pot” by the New York Times, exemplifies the modern-day hybrid of Latin culture, rock and world music. Fronted by the smoky voiced La Marisoul, the group draws inspiration from all over the world, utilizing Pan-American rhythms like Cumbia, Bossa Nova, Rumba, Bolero, Tango, Jazz, Rock and Klezmer music.
West Coast Latin Boogaloo meets East Coast ‘60’s Latin Soul! The Boogaloo Assassins are dedicated to re-creating and re-interpreting the boogaloo craze that swept East Harlem, the Latin Caribbean and South America from 1965 to 1969, the Los Angeles nine-piece band incorporates R&B, doo-wop, Afro-Caribbean jazz and salsa fusion.
