The queen of Tejano music and an idol to an entire generation of young artists, Selena Quintanilla-Pérez is the inspiration for this evening of music and community. Join an exciting lineup of genre-defying Latinx musicians, including Chilean singer-songwriter Mon Laferte; SoCal “DIY dream pop” wunderkind Cuco (Red Bull); Grammy-nominated, genre-defying Guatemalan singer-songwriter Gaby Moreno; fierce, magnetic vocalist and musician Nina Diaz; soulful, alternative R&B artist Omar Apollo; and accomplished songwriter/filmmaker August Eve as they bring their own spirit to Selena’s famous melodies backed by a stellar house band featuring members of Brownout and Antibalas. Ecuadorian-Lithuanian DJ and cultural activist Riobamba cues up the evening from the turntables.

“One of the rising stars of the Mexican music world… Mon Laferte’s dramatic appeal is irresistible.”
“LA’s new romantic. ”
Noisey on Cuco
“Nina Diaz is one of the two or three most exciting, scary-good vocalists in rock today. ”
