GRAMMY WINNING LA SANTA CECILIA TAKES CENTER STAGE AT TEMPE CENTER FOR THE ARTS
April 9, 2017
La Santa Cecilia’s new album is a unique contemporary blend of traditional Mexican and Latin American music titled Amar y Vivir.
Ditching the traditional recording studio, they decided to pay tribute to their musical heroes by recording the entire album over a 5 day period live on the streets, in the bars, and at the parks of Mexico City.
Amar y Vivir is a brilliant 12-song album that truly captures the essence of Mexico, important musical collaborations, as well as its band members and their love for music. The band states that, “The visual album is an exploration of the bands roots and counts with the collaboration of the iconic Mexican singer Eugenia Leon, Chilean star Mon Laferte and the legendary Mariachi America amongst others.”
Kicking off the release of their new album is a brief tour this coming May including stops in California, Texas, New Mexico, and Mexico.
