Get ready to enjoy the soulful melodies of this year’s Gala entertainment performers, the Grammy Award–winning band La Santa Cecilia. Their unique blend of multiple musical genres makes La Santa Cecilia the ultimate ending to an exceptional evening.
La Santa Cecilia exemplifies the modern day creative hybrid of Latin culture, rock and world music. The band traverses a musical landscape as diverse as its home base of Los Angeles, churning together cumbia, tango, rock, rumba, jazz and even klezmer into its own brand of joyfully explosive international pop. Featuring accordion, guitar and percussion behind the vocals of the soulful and charismatic Marisol Hernández, La Santa Cecilia is an emerging musical face of young Latinos.
La Santa Cecilia’s album Treinta Días won for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album at the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards in 2014. The critically-acclaimed and award-winning bilingual/bicultural band from Los Angeles will release new music in the upcoming weeks.
CHCI’s 38th Annual Awards Gala will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on Thursday, October 8. This prestigious event recognizes CHCI’s highest honorees and celebrates the outstanding accomplishments of Latino leaders who are giving back to their communities.
