La Santa Cecelia launches Amar y Vivir at a packed party at Hollywood Forever Cemetery
(Hollywood) La Santa Cecelia, the modern-day creative hybrid of Latin culture and rock and world music, and their management company, Criteria Entertainment, threw a jam-packed release party for Amar y Vivir, the unique visual album of Mexican and Latin American music. Both the video and album were shot and recorded in a blistering 5 days in Mexico City, in streets, bars, parks and iconic locations like the Plaza Santo Domingo, the Zócalo and Salón Tenampa.
Named for the patron saint of music, the Grammy-winning band’s songs from Amar y Vivir ranged from love and loss to the everyday struggles of immigrants, reflecting the concerns and passions of a new bi-lingual, bi-cultural generation in America.
The band is taking their music to that generation in an international tour promoting the video/album starting May 9 in Tuscon, Arizona, going through Texas, New Mexico, Northern California, Mexico City, Colorado, and ending at the Hollywood Bowl on September 17. Tour dates and locations are on the band’s website, http://www.lasantacecilia.com, and the album is now available for pre-order through their Facebook page.
