On this night, Diana Gameros, Maria Jose Montijo, and Jose Lobo will take us on a journey through Latin America by way of original music, folk tunes from their native countries, and stories about their own immigrant journeys.
The night will consist of three short solo sets as well as collaborations between the artists.
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.
