This Song: La Marisoul from La Santa Cecilia
La Marisoul, lead singer and songwriter for the band La Santa Cecilia explains how Mercedes Sosa’s version of “Yo vengo a ofrecer mi corazón” by Fito Páez helped her understand what a powerful tool music could be for connection and healing.
“I can feel myself connected to the earth when I hear her. I feel relieved. I feel like I’m being held by a motherly force…holding me in melody and words that I need.”
This sentiment is reflected in La Santa Cecilia’s latest, self titled release. The record was written during a year when 3 of the 4 band members lost their fathers and finds the group reflecting on family, love, and loss and connection.
