The Greatest Band You Have Never Heard of.

The Greatest Band You Have Never Heard of.

Somehow, The City Of Tulsa continues to be a beacon of progress, in an area that often lacks in ingenuity and vision.  But not to worry, I’m not breaking my golden rule, this is not a political post.

As of part of the Hispanic Heritage month celebrations, organizers for The Festival Americas, managed to bring to the Guthrie Green for a free concert, Grammy Award winner band: La Santa Cecilia. Yes, you read that right. Music concert, check. Grammy award winner band, check. FREE, triple check.

It was a magical evening. Kudos to those who managed to pull it off. Now, back to the band. If you have never heard of La Santa Cecilia, we highly recommend that you add them to your playlist. The lead singer, Marisol Hernandez managed to entertain and put up a World-class show without having to use the theatrical effects often used by Pink, U2, Marilyn Manson, Kiss and others.

Their music was happy, sassy, groovy, fun, spectacular, and of course multicultural. Their message was universal. To conclude, we must do justice to this post, and to do that, we must direct the spotlight to where it deserves to point, to Jose Carlos.  We do not hesitate when we write that he is perhaps the most underrated guitar player on this planet; or perhaps should we say Accordion player. He didn’t only play both instruments, but completely mastered their playing musical arrangements throughout their show. La Santa Cecilia is a without a doubt a must-see musical experience.
