Musical artist La Dona performs a concert interwoven with conversations about how her family's Mission District roots show up in her sound. And it's a sound that is utterly hers: she calls it "femmeton."
La Dona, also known as Cecilia Cassandra Pena-Govea, started playing music in her family's band when she was seven years old. Her debut EP "Algo Nuevo" serves up a blend of Latin Folk, Reggaeton, Cumbia, Hip Hop, and Pop topped off with seamlessly bilingual lyricism. Her topics cover earthquakes, gentrification, fog, coffee, and so many other things we love and hate about the Bay.
Her songwriting is rooted in the call and response, live energy she exchanges with her band and her audience.
