Diana Gameros is a Latin singer/songwriter who performs songs of love, longing, and hope. Originally from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, and now living in San Francisco, Gameros creates inspiring music that reflects the 21st century experiences of a young indie artist at the borderlands between cultures, languages, and genres. Whether teasing every ounce of expression from her acoustic guitar or bringing people to their feet with her dynamic full band, Gameros transfixes listeners with her soaring vocals, impressive musicianship and captivating stage presence. Gameros was born to a musical family where she was surrounded by traditional Mexican songs of love and revolution. The first of her family to receive formal music lessons, she left Mexico as a teenager to study piano and recording technology in the U.S. During those formative years, she soaked up the sounds of classical music, underground rock, the avant-garde, world music, and jazz, forever influencing her own style. Her Latin American inspirations — including contemporary artists like Bebel Gilberto, Fabulosos Cadillacs and Café Tacvba — are woven into her musical DNA.
