World Cafe's Latin Roots segment today features a performance by bilingual Austin singer-songwriter Gina Chavez. Chavez's latest album, Up-Rooted, has been well-received in her hometown, where she won the Austin Music Award for Artist Of The Year, among other honors.

Chavez also won a John Lennon Songwriting Contest Grand Prize for her song "Siete-D," which can be heard in this segment. The passionate performer and activist played this set on stage at the recent XPoNential Music Festival in Philadelphia. You can also hear a Spotify playlist of Up-Rooted on this page.
