*Leticia Rodriguez performs pan-American music. She brings together the finest Austin musicians to accompany her dynamic voice. This concert will feature boleros, nueva trova, and Brazilian favorites. and

*Shirley Johnson is an accordionist and lyricist. Colorfully dressed in ethnic costumes or in formal attire, Shirley skillfully performs a wide selection of Balkan, French, Slavic, German, Italian, and other international and American folk music. She also teaches accordion lessons.

*Nagavalli grew up in Mumbai, India. Her music is described as East Indian Soul with delicate touches of pop, rock, trance and pure Eastern tradition. Nagavalli was ranked in the Top 3 World Music Artists at the 2014-15 Austin Music Awards. The power and emotion in Nagavalli’s voice, her lyrics that speak of inner struggles and inspiration, combined with the effortlessness with which she blends Eastern overtones with Western melodies make Nagavalli’s music refreshingly unique and yet familiar at the same time.

*Kenny Dorham's Backyard was named after a legendary jazz trumpeter who once lived in the East Austin neighbourhood. The 2-acre space is a unique and creative community space managed by Diverse Arts
