Liliana Herrera is best known as the front-woman of the Bay Area based cumbia-dub band Candelaria.
In her most recent work “Golondrina”, she fuses soulful boleros, rancheras, cumbias, blues and more, honoring California’s rich history and abounding contributions of its inhabitants, languages, and folkloric traditions.
Join her, for one night only at La Peña Cultural Center, in a spirited journey of traditional and original song, embodying the majestic wanderings of La Golondrina (the migrating swallow) on her migratory melodic route.
“Golondrina” is the third installment of La Peña Cultural Center’s four-part series examining the role of women in traditional folk music and dance from Latin America and the Caribbean. With the support of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), this series also honors the historic presence of women’s leadership in the promotion of cultural traditions.
