Galería de la Raza: Performance by SLV + Live Screen Printing
April 11, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Please join us for a performance by SLV promoting their new album “Piece of Mind” + Live Screen Printing.
Chicana chanteuse, Sandra Lilia Velasquez (SLV), sings soulful protest songs in English and Spanish that blend pop, electronic world beat, and sultry downtempo grooves. Her journey in music began as the founder and lead vocalist of the Latin band Pistolera, which toured internationally at festivals such as The Montreal Jazz Festival (Canada) Central Park Summerstage (USA), Sfinks (Belgium), and Ollin Kan (Mexico). They performed the NPR Tiny Desk Concert and had their music featured on Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, and more. She initiated the next chapter of her artistic growth under her initials with an EP produced by heavyweight bassist Meshell Ndegeocello who also co-wrote one song and played bass on the recording. SLV’s new album, PIECE OF MIND, is a sharp lyrical reflection on the current state of affairs that for the first time ever has her rapping.
We hope to see you there!
