La Doña Mixes Traditional Latin Folk With Reggaeton, Salsa, And Hip Hop

Apr 28, 2020

Cecilia Peña-Govea is La Doña. She is a Chicana artist whose music explores themes of romance, feminism, and identity. In this edition of Bay Area Beats, La Doña talks about finding her sound in San Francisco’s diverse Latinx communities.

"I think it's that like just a diversity of an understanding of other cultures that makes San Francisco so special."

Before she was La Doña, Cecilia grew up and played in a music-infused family in San Francisco. Her latest album Algo Nuevo is out now.
