La Santa Cecilia Make Some Night Moves With 'Noche y Citas'
La Santa Cecilia
Noche y Citas
With their new EP Noche y Citas, Los Angeles Latin music makers La Santa Cecilia are signed, sealed and delivered. Released by the ambitious new label Rebeleon Entertainment, the band gifts us with four brand-new songs and a remake of an old standard by multi-Grammy award winning producer Sebastian Krys. The collection was released on Tuesday and is available for preview on NPR music's First Listen.
Producer Sebastian Krys has a reputation of being a go-to guy when musicians need a change of sound. This influence shines through with La Santa Cecilia in their remake of "El Farol"--the final track of the new album. Transformed into a hypnotic and sultry tango, Krys takes to the keys himself while accordionist Pepe Carlos coaxes gorgeous tones out of his box.
[Update] 'La Negra' is iTunes' 'Cancion de la Semana' (translation: free download of the week!)
