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.
