“La Santa Cecilia spreads joy every time its members plug in to do a show. They do it one dance step at a time, with cumbias, corridos, elegant mambos and plain old rock ’n’ roll.” NPR

Three of today’s hottest alt-Latino groups come together for the first time, showcasing the exciting and diverse sounds of Mexican music. Los Angeles-based La Santa Cecilia won a Grammy for its blend of Latin rhythms and rock music, and is fronted by Marisol “La Marisoul” Hernandez, “who sings like the love child of Janis Joplin and Celia Cruz” (Los Angeles Times). Out of Mexico’s obsession with all things Morrissey comes Mexrrissey, a pitch-perfect mashup of horns, accordion and other Mexican elements with the British indie rocker’s iconic songs. Not your father’s mariachi band, the Grammy nominated Mariachi Flor de Toloache is New York’s all-female mariachi band, whose broad influences give Mexican folk music a cosmopolitan edge.
