Cecilia Noël is a performer, songwriter, producer, bandleader, mentor, and force of nature. A Peruvian native who is now an LA institution with her band, The Wild Clams. Surrounding herself with top LA talent, The Wild Clams are a massive band, sometimes up to 16 pieces, that reflect Cecilia’s passion, flamboyance, and the many elements that have influenced her music from salsa and soul to jazz, funk, and Afro-Cuban. She describes her music as “Salsoul”, with brass arrangements that remind us of big bands. It is arguably the most potent Latin sound to emerge from Los Angeles in years.
Her most recent album, Havana Rocks, is the best example of this, an ambitious genre-bending project that took Cecilia to Havana, Cuba, to record MTV-era hits like “You Shook Me All Night Long” and “The Boys Are Back In Town” and eventually earned Cecilia the Cuba Disco International Award 2015.
