On this night, María José and Diana will join their voices to bring a unique musical set that will feature original compositions, traditional tunes, and storytelling.
MARÍA JOSÉ MONTIJO
María José’s life changed in 2009 on a beach in her native Puerto Rico, where a friend gave her a used Celtic harp. She began writing hypnotic, haunting songs for harp and voice that incorporate her eclectic musical interests.
María José’s songs grow out of an intuitive process of deep listening and the condition of being fully human in a confusing world. Her lyrics speak of paradoxes: mystery and certainty; doubt and faith; love and solitude; sorrow and connection; exile and feeling at home. Her music is informed by the images and rhythms of the natural world in all its vastness.
Originally from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico and now living in Berkeley California, Gameros creates authentic music that reflects the 21st century experiences of a young indie artist at the borderlands between cultures, languages, and genres. San Francisco latin singer/songwriter Diana Gameros has received much acclaim for her wide range of styles that seem to break down barriers constructed by isolating genres.
