Latin Grammy Nominee Gina Chavez on Catholicism, Being Queer, Multiculturalism, and Practicing Joy

Harmonics with Beth Behrs

Society & Culture

This week's guest is Gina Chavez, a Latin Grammy nominee, multiethnic Austin native, queer Catholic, internationally acclaimed Latinx pop artist who is redefining Latin music in Texas and beyond. A 12-time Austin Music Award winner, including 2015 Musician of the Year and 2019 Best Female Vocals, she is an Austin icon and word is getting out: she has more than one-million views on her NPR Tiny Desk Concert, and she has done a 12-country tour through Latin America, the Middle East and Central Asia as a cultural ambassador with the U.S. State Department. Chavez talks with Beth on the universality of music, growing up Catholic and coming out as lesbian in college, the ancient Latin American traditions that inform her music, and so much more.
