  • 9/27 -  La Santa Cecilia: Amar y Vivir Documentary

For their album, Amar y Vivir, released earlier this year, Grammy-award winning band, La Santa Cecilia went back to the streets of Mexico and recorded the audio as they literally sung in the streets. The album is comprised of covers of some of Latin America's greatest hits.

It's supposed to be a union of the band’s roots--bringing Mexico to the U.S. and vice versa. Also paying homage to the fact that LSC got their start by panhandling in the streets of L.A. Along with the videos, the band recorded a documentary explaining the importance of the album and their duality of being Latino in America.
