"Her voice inhabits that exact place between a dream and reality... with a hint of the emotional power of the best classic Mexican ranchera singers." —NPR
Deeply versatile in expression, Berkeley-based Diana Gameros hypnotizes with solo guitar and a voice that is “at once strong and breathy—in an instant, wounded and boldly searching (NPR).” Singing mostly in Spanish, she creates authentic, inspiring music at the borderlands between cultures, languages, and genres. From the age of 13, Gameros has resided in the United States, and for much of that time, she was an undocumented immigrant. Now with legal status, she writes a love letter to her homeland with 13 standout renditions of classic Mexican songs on her album Arrullo.
