Diana Gameros’ steady fingerpicking and elegantly simple melody create a calm within the storm, a safe place for big questions and long-ailing wounds that transcend any news cycle. Her voice has a remarkable expressive range. She’s at once strong and breathy — in an instant, wounded and boldly searching.

Diana Gameros creates authentic, inspiring music that reflects the 21st century experiences of an indie artist at the borderlands between cultures, languages, and genres. Whether teasing every ounce of expression from her acoustic guitar in an intimate cafe or bringing people to their feet in a club with her dynamic full band, Gameros transfixes listeners with her soaring vocals, impressive playing and captivating stage presence. Her songs and story have been featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered and Weekend Edition, Public Radio International – The World and the PBS Newshour website.

Her entry into NPR’s Tiny Desk contest received a special mention and she recently toured with Tiny Desk winners Tank n the Bangas. She is the recipient of the Emerging Leader Award from the Chicana/Latina Foundation for her work in music and social justice activism.

On Saturday, November 12, Diana celebrates the release of her new album, Arrullo, with a CD release concert at Brava Theater Center. Information and tickets here.

Watch and listen as Diana plays "¿Cómo Hacer?" - a song made up of questions that came out of her need for home, wisdom and forgiveness.
