PRESENTED BY STEPHANIE ROBALINO
Gina is an Official Showcase Alley artist for the 2012 International Folk Alliance in Memphis.
Since the release of her 2007 debut album, Hanging Spoons, Gina Chavez has toured with Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, shared the stage with Ozomatli, Grupo Fantasma, and Del Castillo, and represented the City of Austin on the 2011 Austin Music Vol. 10 compilation CD and as an cultural ambassador to Japan.
National Public Radio touted Gina one of eight "New Latin Artists at SXSW" and her music as a "perfect mix of Latin, folk and bluegrass." She recently returned from 8 months of mission work in El Salvador and established Austin 4 El Salvador, a college scholarship fund for girls she lived and worked with in a gang-dominated part of San Salvador. The Continental Club in Austin will host the next Education for El Salvador benefit concert, featuring Latin rock band Vallejo.
