La Santa Cecilia Mash Up '80s Hits Like "Tainted Love" and Traditional Latin Elements
La Santa Cecilia represents a generation of genre-mashing Latino musicians raised in Los Angeles. Their preferred forms of expression remain the Latin American realms of boleros, rancheras, cumbias and salsa; nevertheless, they expand far beyond them. The band possesses an impressive talent for interweaving them with other influential styles that might seem worlds away but are rooted in the diversity of their city. That central dynamic is on full display with El Valor, their latest Rebeleon Entertainment release.
In support of the effort, the Humberto Howard-directed video for "Tainted Love" debuted on Remezcla just this Monday showing vocalist La Marisoul wearing ruby red lipstick and smooching black and white photos of fellow band members.
