The City of Doral in partnership with The Rhythm Foundation will present Grammy winning latin rock band, La Santa Cecilia, along with South Florida’s own Elastic Bond and Mr. Pauer at the highly anticipated third annual Ritmo Doral, a multinational concert and cultural event that will take place on Saturday, March 23, 2019 in Downtown Doral Park. The free, family-friendly festival, promoting the community’s cultural, diplomatic, business and tourism ties, will feature food and drink vendors, samplings and activities for kids, as well as arts offerings and cultural activations from Doral’s Sister Cities and the local community.
Los Angeles-based Grammy®-winning group La Santa Cecilia formed in 2007 by lead singer Marisol ‘La Marisoul’ Hernandez, accordionist/requinto player Jose ‘Pepe’ Carlos, percussionist Miguel ‘Oso’ Ramirez and bassist Alex Bendaña. The band was awarded the 2014 Grammy for ‘Best Latin Rock’ Album for their Treinta Dias (Universal Music). Named for Cecilia the patron saint of music herself, La Santa Cecilia exemplify the modern-day creative hybrid of Latin culture, rock and world music. The group draws inspiration from their favorite Pan-American rhythms – cumbia, bossa-nova, rumba, bolero, tango, jazz, even klezmer music. Their unique sounds and the experience of their colorful, passionate performances captivate both loyal fans and new listeners. The band has become the voice of a new bicultural generation in the United States, fully immersed in modern music, but always close to their Latin American influences and Mexican heritage.
