UP.ROOTED: Gina Chavez CD Release
Featuring Amy Cook and Emily Wolfe
Hosted by Laurie Gallardo of KUT Austin
Benefiting Nina Arriba college fund for girls in El Salvador
Austin Music Award winner Gina Chavez presents her new studio album, UP.ROOTED, produced by Michael Ramos (Patty Griffin, John Mellencamp). The album is a bilingual garden of delights that traverses many Latin forms, including cumbia, bossa nova and reggaeton.

The Austin American-Statesman calls her “a true Austin music treasure—angelic vocals and a devilish treat on guitar,” and, with praise from NPR’s All Songs Considered and Alt. Latino, two tours in Japan as the Official City of Austin Music Ambassador, and acclaim from Southern Living as one of 11 “southern iconic women who have left a beautiful footprint across the South,” Chavez has claimed a prominent stake in the Live Music Capital.

For the official UP.ROOTED album release, Chavez presents an all-star female lineup featuring beloved indie-folk songstress Amy Cook and rising star Emily Wolfe for an unforgettable evening benefiting the Niña Arriba College Fund that Chavez co-founded for impoverished young women in El Salvador. It’s the perfect way to celebrate love on Valentine’s Day weekend.
