Dear Friends,


While we had to cancel our live concert launch over Mother’s Day weekend noted below with the brilliant, talented, and wonderfully appropriate Texicana Mamas, we remain committed to honoring mothers everywhere, especially those separated from their families while being held in detention centers around the U.S. or being forced to stay in Mexico, putting their lives at grave risk.


Please join us for


A soulful Mother’s Day web-concert

Sunday, May 10, 2020

A music and poetry tribute celebrating

the strength, courage, wisdom and infinite love of mothers.


The show features a wide variety of music genres, from salsa and mariachi, to ballads and world beat. Artists include the Texicana Mamas, Maria D’Luz, David and Maximino Manzanares, Nosotros, Fantuzzi, Consuelo Luz, Patricia Vonne, Let Them Roar, and many others.  


The show will be broadcast in several ways on Mother’s Day:

Television: Azteca 33 San Diego, 4 - 5pm Pacific

Radio & Livestream: La Red Hispana Network

We will love you forever (no matter what…but especially) if you share this broadcast far and wide across land and sea. Last but not at all least, be sure to subscribe to our newsletter to find out about all of our upcoming events.


In solidarity and with deep gratitude for the music, spirit, and tenacity with which we all change the world for the best, 


Felicity and John,
