Indie Pop Infused with Latin Heritage. “Her voice inhabits that exact place between a dream and reality… with a hint of the emotional power of the best classic Mexican ranchera singers.” —NPR.
For an evening of Latin-influenced indie pop and folk, Diana Gameros shares original compositions inspired by her life as an immigrant, her constant search for “home” and by the stories of others she met along her journey.
Deeply versatile in expression, Berkeley-based Diana Gameros hypnotizes with solo guitar and a voice that is “at once strong and breathy—in an instant, wounded and boldly searching (NPR).”
Singing mostly in Spanish, she creates authentic, inspiring music at the borderlands between cultures, languages, and genres. From the age of 13, Gameros has resided in the United States, and for much of that time, she was an undocumented immigrant. Now with legal status, she writes a love letter to her homeland with 13 standout renditions of classic Mexican songs on her album Arrullo.
Accompanying Diana will be Patrick Wolff (clarinet, tenor sax) and Thomas Edler (upright bass).
Originally from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, Diana Gameros is a singer, songwriter, and music instructor.
Gameros creates authentic, inspiring music that reflects the 21st century experiences of a young indie artist at the borderlands between cultures, languages, and genres. Now living in the Bay Area, Diana has played with many local favorites, including the Oakland East Bay Symphony, and has opened concerts for Bebel Gilberto, Latin Grammy winner La Santa Cecilia, Latin Grammy nominee Ximena Sariñana, and many others.
In 2013, Diana released her first album Eterno Retorno, a soulful retrospective of her journey as an immigrant. In October of 2014, she received the Emerging Leader Award from the Chicana/Latina Foundation for her work in music and her support for social justice movements. Diana is currently working on writing music for her second album, which will be produced by Mexican singer-songwriter Natalia Lafourcade.
