In honour of Latin American Heritage Month, National Music Centre is elated to present the live album presentation of Gisela Romero's MEXICANA as part of the CIBC Community Showcase series.
Recorded in the National Music Centre studios and nominated for World Cultural Recording of the year at the 2023 YYC Music Awards, MEXICANA (2023) is a very personal celebration of the cultural and artistic traditions that shaped Gisela Romero as a human, as a woman, and as a singer. The album features the impeccable musicality of musicians from different nationalities that express their music through their understanding of Mexico.
"MEXICANA is a tribute to my roots and to the immigrants that share their cultural treasure with the world. I migrated to Canada 15 years ago. This country has accepted me as one of its own and for that I’ll be forever thankful. Canada is my home, Mexico my family. MEXICANA is a compromise to my two countries to become an artistic ambassador from Mexico and Canada to the world." – Gisela Romero
