Blending Caribbean beats, reggaeton, and hip hop styles, San Francisco-born Cecilia Cassandra Peña-Govea composes songs that explore radical brown femininity as La Doña.
The Mexican-American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist grew up performing professionally as a trumpeter in her parent’s conjunto, eventually mastering instruments such as the guitarrón, vihuela, guitar, and Latin percussion.
“To be a part of my family is also to be a musician,” she says. Her father even joined La Doña’s U.S. tour run with Cuco, for which she composed all the arrangements and led her live band.
Shortly after, she opened for legendary Mexican rock group Café Tacvba and was named one of YouTube Music’s Foundry artists – past alumni include Rosalía, Dua Lipa, Chloe X Halle, and Gunna.
