La Doña, born Cecilia Cassandra Peña-Govea in San Francisco, California, is a solo reggaeton singer, songwriter and multi- instrumentalist. The Chicana artist began her career at age 7 playing trumpet, and later strings and percussion in her family’s conjunto. She also played in a youth salsa band and a Balkan fusion band before synthesizing her unique upbringing in her original compositions. La Doña combines her deep roots in Latin folk traditions like corridos and rumba with the propulsive modern sounds of reggaeton, cumbia, and hip hop.

La Doña coined the term “Femmeton” to describe her auto-referential songs about love, sex, gentrification, and the radical joys of being a queer brown woman in the Bay Area. An activist and educator, she holds her community close- her father, childhood friends, and partner layer live instrumentation, intimate harmonies, and driving percussion over a thick reggaeton beat. Influenced by local muralismo and hyphy sensibilities just as much as global diasporas and climate catastrophes, La Doña’s catalog is eclectic, fresh, and urgent.

La Doña was chosen as one of YouTube’s Foundry Artists and she has performed recently at Tecate’s “El Patio” and Redbull’s “EEUU de Bass”. Her song, “Quién Me La Paga” was the first of the New York Times Magazine’s “19 Songs that Matter Now,” for 2020, and her EP, Algo Nuevo, was selected by the San Francisco Chronicle as one of the 6 best albums of 2020. La Doña was awarded the 2020 Yerba Buena Gardens Festival Mini-Commission, and continues to make music.

    I gasped out loud when I found out she was coming to Portland lol, love La Dona specifically “Dembow y sexo.” I first heard her open for Cuco and have been in love ever since. Her music has a special place in my heart not just because of how catchy it is but how inspiring she is. She blends the best of chicana music and culture unapologetically! I could probably write an essay on her music lol. Thanks for your consideration!

    One of my best friends is coming into town to experience Portland for the first time and I’m playing tour guide. I want to make her time the most memorable.
