TWO PERFORMANCES:

Spanning three generations and an array of celebratory Latin American musical traditions, René y Familia is the latest gift from an iconic San Francisco musical clan.

Led by educator and songwriter René Peña-Govea, the ensemble includes her son Diego, whose original music appeared on the KTVU show SF Loves Learning, and her sister Cecilia Peña-Govea (aka renowned reggaeton artist La Doña).

Their parents, Susan Peña and Los Compas bandleader Miguel Govea, got the party started more than two decades ago with La Familia Peña-Govea, which was a mainstay at community events, festivals and fundraisers. Like that storied conjunto, René y Familia delivers rancheras, cumbias, merengues, boleros and sones, turning every gathering into fiesta while also raising themes of cultural pride, socio-emotional awareness and solidarity.
