Diana Gameros is a singer, songwriter, composer, and social justice activist. Originally from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico and living In the Bay Area since 2008, Gameros creates music at the borderlands between cultures, languages, and genres. As a formerly undocumented immigrant, Gameros’ music often tells stories of family, migration, and home, and has led her to perform with other prominent performers such as Joan Baez, Taylor Mac, Natalia Lafourcade, and the San Francisco Symphony.

Even as she continues her musical journey, Gameros uses music as a platform to celebrate her Mexican heritage, and to expand the conversation around social justice issues, especially those involving the immigrant community. Gameros has performed and spoken at rallies, protests, vigils, universities, county jails, juvenile halls, detention centers, hospitals, city halls, and at events for non-profit organizations committed to promote justice. In 2013 she released her first album "Eterno Retorno",  a soulful retrospective of her journey as an immigrant, and in 2014 she received the Emerging Leader Award from the Chicana/Latina Foundation for her work in music and social justice activism. Gameros was named one of YBCA's 100 Artists in 2015, for asking the questions and making the provocations that are shaping the future of American culture. In 2017 Gameros released "Arrullo", an album of classic Mexican songs arranged and produced to pay homage to her heritage and homeland. Her songs and story have been featured on NPR, Billboard, Mother Jones, and the PBS Newshour, among others. A documentary film about her was released by KQED in 2020.

Diana will be accompanied by Patrick Wolff, a saxophone and clarinet player, a composer, passionate jazz educator and advocate, with a long history in the jazz scenes of New York city and San Francisco.
