Originally from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, Diana Gameros is a singer, guitarist, and composer. Gameros creates authentic, inspiring music that reflects the twenty first-century experiences of an indie artist at the borderlands between cultures, languages, and genres. Now living in the Bay Area, Gameros has played with many local favorites, including the Oakland East Bay Symphony and the Magik*Magik Orchestra, and has opened concerts for Bebel Gilberto, Latin Grammy winners La Santa Cecilia, Latin Grammy nominee Ximena Sariñana, and many others. In 2013 she released her first album, Eterno Retorno, a soulful retrospective of her journey as an immigrant. In October 2014 she received the Emerging Leader Award from the Chicana/Latina Foundation for her work in music and her support of social justice movements. Gameros’s songs and stories have been featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered, NPR’s Alt. Latino Podcast, Public Radio International’s The World, and PBS NewsHour. She is currently writing music for her second album, which will be coproduced by the Mexican songwriter Natalia Lafourcade.
