This event has passed.


Gina Chavez' bilingual, pan-Latin sound embodies the true meaning of "America." Her high-energy concerts take audiences on a melodic journey tracing her Latin roots from Austin to Argentina, El Salvador to Venezuela and beyond, blending the sounds and rhythms of the region with tension and grace. Backed by a talented four-piece band, she performs a passionate collection of songs traversing cumbia, bossa nova, vintage pop, reggaeton, and folk. Gina tours internationally as a cultural ambassador with the U.S. State Department's American Music Abroad program, and runs Niñas Arriba, a college scholarship fund for young women in gang-dominated El Salvador.

Ages: 3 and above
