Among the Bay Area’s bustling music scene is singer-guitarist Diana Gameros, an artist who’s quickly caught the attention of national media as well as acclaimed musicians (i.e. La Santa Cecilia, Natalia Lafourcade, Bebel Gilberto, Taylor Mac, San Francisco Symphony) who’ve been drawn to her singular music and intrigued by her life story. Deeply versatile in expression, Gameros hypnotizes with solo voice and guitar, brings audiences to their feet with her brass and bass trio, and soars like a bird with symphony orchestras. Singing mostly in Spanish, she creates authentic, inspiring music at the borderlands between cultures, languages, and genres.
In 2013, Gameros released her first official album “Eterno Retorno”, a soulful retrospective of her journey as a musician and immigrant. In October of 2014, she received the Emerging Leader Award from the Chicana/Latina Foundation for her work in music and her support to social justice movements. Gameros’ songs and story have been featured on NPR, Public Radio International – The World, and PBS Newshour.
