Solidarity for Sanctuary began as a series of concerts in 2017, created by artist manager and activist Doris Muñoz, who put the shows together to help raise funds for her family’s immigration fees. But it soon evolved into a bigger, more proactive platform, amplifying the voices of immigrant communities through music, art and advocacy.
This week, Solidarity for Sanctuary presents another outstanding line-up of performances by Carla Morrison, iLe, Alaina Castillo, Lido Pimienta (“Eso Que Tu Haces” from the album Miss Columbia is featured on today’s Austin Music Minute), Combo Chimbita, Nitty Scott, Kaina, and recent 2020 Tiny Desk contest winner Linda Diaz. The show starts at 6 p.m. (Central) tonight, Tuesday September 1, on the Amazon Music Twitch channel.
This is a lot of awesome musical discovery to lose yourself in. Go for it.
