The Los Angeles-based band La Santa Cecilia will headline the 6th annual Target Feria de la Familia at Plaza de la Raza in Lincoln Park this Sunday, July 24.

Our youth reporter, Diana Arellano, featured the band in the June edition of Boyle Heights Beat/El Pulso de Boyle Heights (read story here) describing their sound as a “unique mixture of traditional Mexican ballads, jazz, rumba and even Jewish klezmer music.”

La Santa Cecilia, named after the Mexican patron saint of musicians, came together in 2007 and quickly made a name for themselves, opening for Ozomatli in 2010 and performing at major music festivals such as South By South West. Their latest album, “Noche y Citas,” was released last year under Grammy Award-winning producer Sebastian Krys’ new label Rebeleon.

The Target Feria de la Familia is a free family event with dance, art activities, storytelling, food, theatre and more. Other musical performances include Chicano Batman, Ozomatli’s Raul Pacheco & The Immaculate Conception and Plaza’s award-winning youth and adult folklórico dancers and mariachis.
