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. During her 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.

She has performed an NPR Tiny Desk Concert, with both the San Francisco Symphony and Oakland Symphony, toured with Mexican pop star Nataila Lafourcade, and performed an opening slot with Brazilian song legend Bebel Gilberto.

More

Gameros made her debut with 2013’s Eterno Retorno (Eternal Return), followed by her latest, Arrullo (Lullaby) — a collection of songs inspired by her childhood in Mexico.

Diana Gameros’ steady fingerpicking and elegantly simple melody create a calm within the storm, a safe place for big questions and long-ailing wounds that transcend any news cycle.
