Gina Chavez is both a hometown hero and international ambassador. Born and raised in Austin, Chavez has wowed crowds here and abroad, recorded a Tiny Desk Concert for NPR, and just received a Latin Grammy nomination for this year’s La Que Manda, her first album sung entirely in Spanish. Her electro-tinged anthems are built on a foundation of folkloric sounds, and this week on My KUTX, Chavez explores electronic and folk traditions from Mexico, Colombia, Austin, and more. Hear Gina Chavez’s My KUTX on Saturday, November 21 at 6 p.m., or listen anytime at the top of the page.
