La Marisoul, the acclaimed lead singer of GRAMMY-winning band La Santa Cecilia, will perform select songs with The Love Notes Orchestra from the eponymously titled 2020 album La Marisoul and The Love Notes Orchestra Vol. 1. Taking cues from Bolero singers Olga Guillot and Toña La Negra, as well as Jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald, the stunning album pays tribute to the complexities of love by offering reinterpretations of Latin love song classics. La Marisoul’s potent and soaring voice, backed by a live orchestra, will transport audiences through a fond musical journey that will leave them swooning in love, reminiscing on past romances and healing from the most devastating of heartbreaks.
Eliades Ochoa is one of the most important Cuban soneros of all time, a notable defender of traditional Cuban music and the best guitarist of his generation. He is one of the stars of the historic album Buena Vista Social Club, which is now celebrating 25 years, with his memorable interpretations of Chan Chan and El Cuarto de Tula, which still stream millions of times a year and are loved by fans worldwide. Ochoa makes his Music Center debut alongside the release of a brand-new album Guajiro, which features guest artists Joan As Police Woman, Rubén Blades and Charlie Musselwhite.
