A multi-ethnic Latin pop songstress, Gina Chavez is a 10-time Austin Music Award winner. Her bilingual record, Up.Rooted, topped both the Amazon and Latin iTunes charts following a feature on NPR’s All Things Considered and has been hailed by The Boston Globe, USA Today, and Texas Monthly. Her Tiny Desk concert made NPR’s top 15 of 2015. Fresh off a 10-country tour as a cultural ambassador with the U.S. State Department, Chavez’s passionate collection of bilingual songs takes audiences on a journey through the Americas, blending the sounds and rhythms of the region with tension and grace.


A college fund launched by Gina Chavez called Niñas Arriba is a campaign to change the world, one girl at a time. In 2009, Gina was teaching English with Jodi Granado in El Salvador. They asked their senior students who wanted to go to college. Every student raised a hand. And every hand dropped when they asked who was planning to attend college. Niñas Arriba funds college education for young women in a gang-dominated suburb in El Salvador, as well as internships after graduation. Every girl makes a difference. Every dollar helps.
