Join us tonight in the Amphitheater at 8:15 PM for an evening with Gina Chavez. Her bilingual record, Up.Rooted, topped both the Amazon and Latin iTunes charts following a feature on NPR's “All Things Considered.” Chavez’s bilingual, pan-Latin sound embodies the multi-ethnicity of America. Her high-energy concerts take audiences on a melodic journey from Austin to Argentina, El Salvador to Venezuela and beyond, blending the sounds and rhythms of each region. Backed by a talented four-piece band, Chavez performs a passionate collection of songs traversing genres such as cumbia, bossa nova, vintage pop, reggaeton, and folk.
