On Sunday night, the band La Santa Cecilia took home the Grammy for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album for their album “Treinta Dias."

The band hails from Los Angeles, where its members got their start singing boleros for change around Olvera Street. We spoke with band member and lead vocalist Marisol Hernandez back in September.


It's been ten years since the gleaming, swooping silhouette of the Walt Disney Hall became part of the LA skyline and it's kicking off its birthday celebrations this Sunday with a free concert just down the hill in Grand Park. 

Gustavo Dudamel will conduct a performance by the LA Philharmonic with Youth Orchestra LA and it's only appropriate that they'll be joined by another group that, like Disney Hall, is a true LA original. La Santa Cecilia joins Take Two.
