In this Episode of the Latin Babbler Show, we welcome a special Guest Mexican-American singer-songwriter Chesca Música who is debuting her single ‘Mijita’. Also a discussion on Ana Basaldua Ruiz and the situation in Fort Hood, Bad Bunny’s 40 million dollar lawsuit from ex-girlfriend Carliz De La Cruz Hernández, and thoughts on the meaning of the WBC tournament.
The San Francisco-born, New York-bred, Mexican-American singer-songwriter Chesca Música has captivated audiences with her unique vocal style and eclectic vibe that incorporates everything from pop, dream pop, and R&B to EDM. Her songs artfully blend hard-hitting themes of struggle and breakthrough with an ultra-infectious neo-soul and dance energy. Recently, Chesca Música was featured in Modern Luxury Magazine as one of the leading Dynamic Women of 2022. Her songs have been played at New York Fashion Week, AVP Pro Beach Volleyball tournament, Crunch Fitness Club, Gap stores, and New York City restaurants and nightclubs. Chesca Música has performed her songs in English and Spanish at intimate nightclubs and other venues in NYC such as Bowery Electric, Drom, Pianos, Heaven Can Wait, Parkside Lounge, Electric Room, and FishBowl – Dream Midtown. She has also performed at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Chesca cites some of her major all-time vocal and songwriting influences as Alanis Morrisette, Amy Winehouse, Selena, and Lady Gaga – all women who were “super-honest about themselves and able to put those emotions into their songs.” Now that she’s an artist and songwriter herself, she says she hopes that people will feel “heard” and their feelings validated when they hear the rawness and honesty of her music. After releasing back-to-back albums with Chesca Música in 2020 followed by Feel The Breeze in 2021, Chesca Música will soon release her third studio album in English and Spanish, which explores different themes and genres. “Mijita” will be the first single released from her upcoming album during Women’s History Month.
