San Cha is a Mexican-American singer-songwriter whose work is influenced by a variety of genres including Mexican folk, Catholic Gospel, cumbia, and punk rock. Her performances incorporate these varying musical styles to confront challenges faced by women of color and the LGBTQ and Xicanx communities.
Her album, El Capricho del Diablo, was released in late April 2018 and attendees had the chance to hear these new songs live at Ballroom. The album is an exploration of her own Catholic upbringing and her experiences navigating the power structures that support inequalities of class, race, sexuality, and gender.
For the performance at Ballroom, San Cha was joined by Ashley Hicks from Experiencia Mosaico (DJ) and the scintillating guitar work of Mamis.
San Cha’s performance is made in part by the generous support of National Endowment for the Arts, Texas Commission on the Arts, the Ballroom Marfa Board of Trustees and Ballroom Marfa members.
Ballroom Marfa extends a special thank you to Jackson Wisdorf and Marfa Public Radio.
