Diana Gameros in Concert: A Tribute to Mothers and Family Tradition

Featuring Diana’s mother Altagracia Estupiñan & grandmother Leonarda Renteria

 SUNDAY, MAY 12, 2019 – 7PM

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 like La Santa Cecilia, Natalia Lafourcade, Bebel Gilberto, Taylor Mac, and the San Francisco Symphony, who’ve all been drawn to her singular music and intrigued by her life story. 

On Sunday, May 12, Brava presents Diana Gameros live in concert! For this one-night only special event, Diana pays tribute to mothers, grandmothers and family traditions. By way of song, story, video, and sound clips from her beloved Mexico, Diana will take us on a dreamy trip to a land full of magic, folklore and maternal love. She will perform songs from her latest album Arrullo, along with maternal and festive Mexican tunes, and original compositions that are a soulful and musical retrospective of her journey as a Mexican immigrant. Accompanying Diana on vocals - and traveling all the way from Mexico - will be her own mother, Altagracia Estupinan, and Leonarda Renteria, her grandmother. Patrick Wolff will be featured on tenor sax and clarinet.

[Diana’s] voice inhabits that exact place between a dream and reality. It’s like the velvety fog that rolls into San Francisco from the Pacific Ocean with a hint of the emotional power of the best classic Mexican ranchera singers.
