Lunada's Spring 2017 Season Closer features Saint-Hills, DJ Glo, and 10 spots on our Open Mic. 

Open Mic sign-up at 7:15pm: 10 spots on the list, 5 min. each, inviting poets, emcees, singer/ songwriters, storytellers, laureates, and first-timers to share their voices under the lunar spotlight.

Lunada closes a phenomenal 2017 Spring season with much pride, featuring Brazilian emerging artist, singer producer Saint-Hills, and Nuyorican DJ Glo - spinning tribal, caribbean, latinx, and afro beats. With deep love for our pueblo, we enter the summer on our feet, dancing under the full moon at Galeria de la Raza.

LUNADA is the Bay Area’s only full moon bilingual literary ritual & performance gathering devoted to spoken word, música, song, and story. Located in the heart of the Mission District at Galería de la Raza, and guest curated by some of the Bay Area’s most dynamic word slingers and artists, each LUNADA features community poets, local legends, visiting mystics, and other mero meros of the stage. Voted Best Literary Night of 2016 by the SF Bay Guardian.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS 

Saint-Hills is a 20-year-old Brazilian producer and singer, known for his unique electro-pop sound, which contains strong influences of Brazilian music and culture. In 2015 Saint-Hills moved from his hometown Brasilia, Brazil to San Francisco, USA, where both his career and personal life took flight. In San Francisco, Saint-Hills produced and released his first single, the bilingual song "(Geo)graphy." Saint-Hills is also the first transgender/gender non-conforming singer to come out of Brazil. 

DJ Glo, a Nuyorican, is passionate about the art of DJing and a student learning everyday. Influenced by the salsa, bachata, merengue, and freestlyle music they heard growing up, you can expect to hear (and feel) tribal, caribbean, latinx, and/or afro beats while listening to their set.
