DIANA GAMEROS & RENEE GOUST
Join Celebrate Mexico Now for a night of musical borderlands, celebrating a new generation of Mexican-American singer-songwriters with performances by Renee Goust and Diana Gameros. Having grown up between the U.S. and Mexico, Renee and Diana move between different cultures, languages and genres to deliver anthems of personal, cultural and sometimes political identity.
This presentation is possible thanks to the support of the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center.
Raised in Ciudad Juarez and coming the the U.S. as an undocumented immigrant in her teenage years, singer-songwriter Diana Gameros’s music takes the listener on a journey through reinterpretations of classic Mexican songs as well as original compositions. In October of 2014 she received the Emerging Leader Award from the Chicana/Latina Foundation for her work in music and her support to social justice movements. She is currently on tour with Natalia LaFourcade.
Renee Goust is a New York City based Mexican-American singer-songwriter and activist. She sings in Spanish, English, French and Italian while moving between American folk, rancheras, norteño cumbias, indie rock and pop to tell stories of growing up between the Arizona/Sonora border; of growing up queer in a conservative religious environment; and transforming hardship into self-empowerment.
