La Doña in concert with special guests, is a fundraiser for Music Declares Emergency US (MDE US), a non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire artists, music industry professionals, and organizations to stand together and declare a climate and ecological emergency, and call for an immediate governmental response to protect all life on Earth. We believe in the power of music to activate fans to accelerate the cultural change needed to create a sustainable future. The concert has been selected as an official event for the 2023 Climate Week in NYC.
La Doña has steadily become an unequivocal artist to watch. She was chosen as one of YouTube’s Foundry Artists, was awarded the 2020 Yerba Buena Gardens Festival Mini-Commission, and performed at Tecate’s “El Patio” and Redbull’s “EEUU de Bass.” She also released her aforementioned EP, Algo Nuevo, which was selected by the San Francisco Chronicle as one of the 6 best albums of 2020. One of the standout tracks from the project, “Quién Me La Paga” was the first of The New York Times Magazine’s “19 Songs that Matter Now." La Doña's 2022 single "Penas Con Pan," was also recently featured in former President Barack Obama's new 2023 playlist.
La Doña, the musical persona of Cecilia Cassandra Peña-Govea, shares her latest single and music video, "Show Me How You Livin," feat. Tia Nomore from her upcoming EP Can't Eat Clout out September 15th via Text Me Records. Incorporating elements of flamenco, Cuban tarareo, salsa, and second-line brass composition, all of which are layered over a hyphy beat, this new offering from the Bay Area artist provides a glimpse into what her upcoming project has to offer.
Music Declares Emergency US selected La Doña to headline the event due to her longstanding record as an activitist with synergistic beliefs. “As an artist, educator, and tia, climate catastrophe is at the forefront of my mind at all times. The work I can do as a cultural worker with youth is highly impacted by the violence of climate change; the next generation deserves the security of a livable future, and to study, grow, and thrive without the very real terrors of fires, floods, and other climate catastrophes. I feel committed to using my platform to speak up in declaring climate emergency and supporting all harm reduction work including native land sovereignty, investing in land stewardship and education initiatives, sustainable and renewable water conservation methods, divesting in fossil fuels, checking corporate pollution, and direct aid to victims of climate catastrophe. “ - Cecilia
