“Guadalupe” Angelica Garcia

Angelica Garcia, releases her new album Cha Cha Palace, on February 28th, via Spacebomb Records. Along with the news, she has given fans a taste of the album, with the Spencer Ford-directed for “Guadalupe.” The song is a meditation on the deity as a powerful 14 year-old who is the epicenter of a culture—and the responsibility that comes along with that. The announcement comes on the heels of an exciting beginning to the year, which included a co-sign from President Barack Obama. Garcia will next perform as part of the second installment of Remezcla’s Nuevo Noise series at Brooklyn, NY’s Elsewhere Zone One on January 27th before returning to SXSW Music Festival 2020 in March. She’ll also support Helado Negro as part of the Noise Pop Festival at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall on February 26th; see below for a full itinerary.

“Growing up I was taught the tradition of looking up to La Virgen de Guadalupe for comfort and protection. This was passed down to me by my grandmother. As I got older, the duality of her story started to sink in with me,” explains Garcia. “I was confused that this young mother is so highly regarded in Latinx culture, yet many women around me (my mothers, cousins, sisters, and friends) felt so disrespected at times because of their gender and its associated roles. I believe part of her power is that she’s an unexpected hero. Her power is not defined by her physique. I give thanks for that and cherish that—because if it’s true for her, it’s true for me and my sisters. Sacredness is held within us and cannot be deciphered by an outer appearance.”
