I Won't Cry For You - La Santa Cecelia

from the forthcoming album Buenaventura (2016)

This time next week I will grooving with my funky friends at the Todos Santos Music Festival somewhere along the Baja Coast.  Counting down the days, my excitement is off the charts, particularly after hearing a few tunes off of the forthcoming La Santa Cecelia album, Buenaventura.

For those not familiar, this band combines an alternative roots concept with cumbia and boleros to form a most satisfying vibe, led by the incredible voice of La Marisoul.  Their album Treinta Días won the 2014 Grammy for Best Latin Rock, Urban, or Alternative Album.  They are currently based in Los Angeles.

The song I am digging is I Won't Cry For You.  The snap of the snare, the luscious accordion, and horns accenting La Marisoul's vocals make me want to dance.  Soon...
