In an intimate night of Mexican music and stories, Diana Gameros celebrates the release of her new album, Arrullo, and pays homage to her roots, family and traditions. Featured guests include the Magik*Magik string quartet, Patrick Wolff, and Diana’s own mother.
Join Diana in the lobby following the concert where she’ll be meeting guests and signing CDs.
“The songs in Arrullo are songs from my childhood. These songs now lull me and take me back to the times when my big Mexican family would gather in my grandparents’ home – a pink house surrounded by pecan trees, rose shrubs and cacti – located in a small farm town called Torreoncitos, eight hours south of Ciudad Juárez, my hometown. I can still hear it all: the voices of my mother and grandmother singing in the living room; the strum of my uncle’s guitars, and their voices harmonizing to my grandmother’s melody; the uproar of happy kids dancing to the tunes; the uneven rhythm of my own guitar slowing down everybody’s beat because I was still learning how to play; the faraway sounds of dogs, cows and chickens accompanying our music from a distance.
“This album is an homage to those times, to my abuelita’s living room – my first music “school” – to the farm life, and to the country that showed me the magical beauty of family and traditions. I hope that, as music continues to grow and evolve, we all ensure that the legacy of our ancestors stays alive and their light shines on, so that they can keep inspiring and illuminating the path of many more generations to come.” – Diana Gameros.
