Hotly tipped LA-based singer-songwriter San Cha takes traditional Mexican music and turns it on its head. On the opening night of Red Bull Music Festival Los Angeles, she’ll bring an original multifaceted vision to life, a showcase of some of Los Angeles’ most talented musicians and her own Latinx roots. Centering the narrative on the familiar dramatic structures of telenovelas she grew up watching, this one night engagement will come together in the halls of Vibiana, a 19th century cathedral in Downtown Los Angeles. The Red Bull Music Academy Bass Camp alumna will include music from mariachi trio La Victoria, Afro-Latin band Yanga, Latin slow disco from her own band (featuring members of Sister Mantos and F U Pay Us) as well as performance direction from multidisciplinary artist Sebastian Hernandez. In short, this opening night will be one full of surprises.

Hotel Figueroa Q1 2019 Featured Artist – Shizu Saldamando
“I gravitate towards portraiture through painting as a means to reclaim agency and representation…throughout art history (or at least the western European version of it), people of color have had very little representation and when they have been represented, it has been through a colonial gaze. I try to represent my friends and family in a way that is familiar, relatable, and not sensationalized or steeped in extreme stereotypes or criticisms.” – Shizu Saldamando
Shizu Saldamando was born and raised in San Francisco’s Mission District, and currently lives and works in Los Angeles. She received her B.A. from UCLA’s School of Arts and Architecture and her M.F.A. from California Institute of the Arts. Her portraiture employs painting and drawing on canvas, wood, paper and cloth, and functions as homage, as well as documentation, of subcultures within and around the Los Angeles metropolitan area.
Solo exhibitions include To Return, Charlie James Gallery; When You Sleep: A Survey of Shizu Saldamando, Vincent Price Art Museum; All Tomorrow’s Parties, Moore College of Art and Design; and Stay Gold, Space 47. Shizu’s work has been exhibited in the National Portrait Gallery, D.C., Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Japanese American National Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego. Shizu Saldamando was among the artists selected to represent Los Angeles in an official collateral exhibition at the 56th la Biennale di Venezia, Biennale Arte 2015.
Shizu Saldamando is represented by Charlie James Gallery, Los Angeles. All works on display are available for purchase; please see our concierge desk for more information.
