We’re a little obsessed with Diana Gameros at KQED Arts. Our producer Kelly Whalen profiled her in a video, and she was a KQED Women to Watch.

Gameros is a singer-songwriter from Ciudad Juarez in Mexico, now settled in San Francisco. She was undocumented for years before achieving legal status, and her songs sound traditional, even as she writes about US immigration policy. But most importantly, we love her voice.

She plays St. Cyprian's in San Francisco on March 24 with Megan Keely. Details here. And then she kicks off the free Yerba Buena Gardens Festival with the splendid all woman mariachi quartet Flor de Toloache May 6. Details here.
