Vesper Public Relations. Los Angeles, CA — Captivating audiences for the past six years, Ánimo Production announces the 6th annual Boleros de Noche concert series at The Ford. The series highlights Mexico’s golden era of Boleros.
Boleros De Noche has become one of the most beloved music and cultural experiences in Los Angeles featuring talent from SoCal to international stars of the Bolero music genre.
Created by cultural promoter Roberto Carlos, the series seeks to preserve, uplift, and celebrate Latin American Bolero music history in Los Angeles and is quickly garnering multi-generational audiences. Now in its sixth year, the series is curated by its founder. A Oaxacan immigrant, Roberto Carlos, is a young Los Angeles-based artist/culture promoter who founded the series and has committed his musical journey to Bolero music and its traditions.
‘La Marisoul and the Loves Notes Orchestra”
One of the most unique and outstanding voices in Latin music, La Marisoul, is the phenomenal artist and lead singer of the Grammy award-winning band La Santa Cecilia. La Marisoul and the Love Notes Orchestra transform classic boleros backed by an 18-piece big band orchestra which provides striking larger-than-life arrangements on a curated selection of classics. Among these classics include “Dream a Little Dream” ft. The Song Birds, “Oración Caribe,” and “Nuestro Juramento,” to name only a few of the songs we can expect that night as well as some surprises.
La Marisoul will be performing songs off her two-volume solo album, ‘La Marisoul and the Love Notes Orchestra’ Vol 1 & Vol. 2,’ inspired by legendary artists such as Olga Guillot, Toña La Negra, and Ella Fitzgerald. The album, produced by La Marisoul herself, is a stunning tribute to Bolero music and American jazz, reviving the genres for a new generation of listeners around the globe.

ABOUT BOLEROS DE NOCHE:
L.A. cultural promoter Roberto Carlos launched the Boleros De Noche music series in 2015 in an effort to promote Latin American Bolero music history in Los Angeles. The series is committed to the coordination of quality cultural events that convene an intergenerational audience to share live Bolero music. Since its launch, Boleros De Noche has presented more than ten highly successful concerts featuring international and local artists.
Trio romántico Bolero music features the guitar, the complex instrumentation of a requinto (a smaller guitar typically tuned a fifth higher than a standard guitar), romantic lyrics and lush harmonies. It is considered by many to be the most romantic music genre of Latin America. The genre originated in Cuba in 1883 but gained international notoriety once the genre reached Mexico in the 1940s.
