Named after music's patron saint
La Santa Cecilia, from Los Angeles, combines elements of cumbia, rock, bolero, bossa nova, jazz, tango and ranchera in its music.
The group won the 2014 Grammy for its album “Trienta Dias.” The group was nominated in the same category for its album “Buenaventura” in 2017 and again for its disc “Y Vivir” in 2018.
In all, it has released seven albums, with its most recent being the self-titled “La Santa Cecilia” in 2019.
The group is named after the patron saint of music. Formed 15 years ago, the group has toured the world with its high-energy blend of Latin and American musical traditions, reflecting its members’ bilingual, multicultural identities.
It has collaborated with Los Lobos, Pepe Aguilar, Elvis Costello, Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones and others, and recorded songs for films such as “Cantinflas,” “The Book of Life” and Pixar’s Oscar-winning “Coco.”
The Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation funds the free Levitt National Tour at venues which it also helps fund.
The tour will be the seventh Levitt National Tour, which began in 2014 with the world-music fusion of Playing For Change. Other Levitt pavilions are in Arlington, Texas; Denver, Colorado; Dayton, Ohio; Sioux Falls, South Dakota; and Los Angeles.
Levitt Pavilion SteelStacks is scheduled to release its full summer season on April 30.
