If difficult times call for extraordinary voices, singer-songwriter and guitarist Diana Gameros is the woman for the hour. The Mexican-born songstress draws on her long experience without papers to explore the plight of border crossers of all stripes, bringing luminous humanity to a topic defined by searing heat rather than light. Singing mostly in Spanish, Diana creates authentic music at the borderlands between cultures, languages, and genres. Her music is an artistic triumph for these ethnophobic times. Diana has performed with the San Francisco Symphony, Natalia Lafourcade, and has shared the stage with Tank and the Bangas, Bebel Gilberto, among others. Her songs and story have been featured on Billboard, Mother Jones, NPR, and PBS, to name a few.
