BIOGRAPHY
Cecilia Noël

Is passionate, flamboyant, exotic, and incredible talented – and on her aptly titled CD, A Gozár! (to enjoy), she demonstrates why critics have long called her the “Latin Tina Turner.” “Salsoul”, the genre Noël created to describe her sound, combines elements of salsa, soul, jazz, funk, and afro-cuban.
Featuring smoking hot Latin grooves laced with rapid-fire Spanish lyrics, A Gozár! is a manifestation of Noël’s love of music and dance. Noël wanted the CD to be “something that you can put on at your party and dance to… take a little break to dance to the ballad cheek-to-cheek and then dance some more.
The tracks on A Gozar! range from tributes to some of the great Salsa and Cuban artists of the past, to Noël’s originals, and some of her favorite long-time standards. A Gozár!, says Noël, “is the soundtrack of my life in a way. These are the songs I’ve enjoyed singing the most, the ones that get people up and really dancing, and the ones that really blow people away. I call what I do ‘hardcore salsa’ because nowadays there is a lot of romantic salsa but I’m more of a punk salsa singer. I hope people will appreciate the intensity and the passion of this record."
She is not lightweight; Cecilia Noël is the Nine Inch Nails of salsa.
Originally from Lima, Perú, Noël’s career began at the age of eight with a starring role in a Perúvian television show called “El Tío Johnny." As a teenager, Noël's mother Menina Pereira sent her to Argentina and Germany to take voice, violin, and piano lessons. Upon returning, she sang and studied under the tutelage of famed Italian bandleader Carlo Berscia. Encouraged by the legendary Stan Getz to move to the US, Noël relocated to New York City and sang at the legendary Rainbow Room, and as a principal dancer with Jo Jo’s Dance Factory and with the legendary boy band Menudo.
Noël moved to Los Angeles in 1989, and, with her newly formed SalSoul band Cecilia Noël and The Wild Clams were signed to Epic records shortly thereafter.
A James Brown meets Pérez Prado band, Cecilia Noël And The Wild Clams quickly received  attention for their explosive live shows and became one of the most powerful and entertaining live music acts in Los Angeles, and beyond, over the last 20 years.
This year of 2014, finds Cecilia about to release her new album "Havana Rocks" in August, recorded in Havana, Cuba. She is currently playing dates in LA and surrounding areas, with her new somewhat smaller band, with spectacular musicians hailing from Cuba, Puerto Rico and Venezuela.
Noël also performs and records with husband and former Men At Work frontman Colin Hay.
