La Santa Cecilia is currently the most visible and critically acclaimed Latin group to emerge from the vibrant L.A. music scene that includes groups like Quetzal, Las Cafeteras and Chicano Batman, among many others. While the band mostly records in Spanish, evident in the group's sound are influences as diverse as cumbia, bossa nova, norteño, and classic rock with a Latin tinge. Case in point, their latest album features a Latinized cover of "Strawberry Fields Forever" and recent solo performances by La Marisoul have showcased a soulful cover of The Smiths' "Shoplifters of The World Unite." La Marisoul's Aretha Franklin-meets-Lola-Beltran vocals and the pan-Latino grooves of her band mates have established the band as a favorite among cultural critics and street-corner critics.
