LUNADA is the Bay Area’s only full moon bilingual literary ritual & performance gathering devoted to spoken word, música, song, and story. Located in the heart of the Mission District at Galería de la Raza, and guest curated by some of the Bay Area’s most dynamic word slingers and artists, each LUNADA features community poets, local legends, visiting mystics, and other mero meros of the stage. Voted Best Literary Night two years in a row by the SF Bay Guardian, 2016 & 2017.
Sandra García Rivera is an award-winning Nuyorican poet and accomplished vocalist, who has captured audiences throughout the U.S., the Caribbean and Europe both as a solo artist, and alongside musical legends. Her work elevates women and youth voices, Puerto Rican & Caribbean culture and community empowerment. SGR has been the host and curator of Lunada Literary Lounge since 2010, when she was invited by the series’ founder Marc David Pinate to take the reigns and bring the Lunada series into it’s next manifestation. During her eight year tenure, Lunada has hosted some of the most important established and emerging Latinx and Writers of Color of our time, from San Francisco, the Bay Area, and around the world.
