  • JUNE 8: AC Sapphire + Caliko - Regularly championing other women and non-binary folks in the music industry, AC Sapphire attracts instant fans with her powerful voice and songwriting chops. Her music offers stunning, shimmering collections of electric rock songs, served as nostalgic souvenirs. Always in motion, AC also has a duo project called Caliko with long-time singing partner Kendall Lujan.
  • JUNE 15: Cachitas Now! - Hailing from Argentina, the swooping hooks, party grooves, and cumbia-grounded sound of this identity-inclusive LGBTQIA+ band buoyantly challenges societal norms, celebrates difference, and reclaims the love song for all. Cachitas Now! is on tour as part of Center Stage.
  • JUNE 22: J. Hoard - Singer/songwriter on two GRAMMY winning albums, J Hoard’s lyricism and melodic vocal arrangements have promoted faith in action through the women’s rights, civil rights, and LGBTQ rights movements. 
  • JUNE 29: Jobi Riccio - An active member of the burgeoning queer country scene, Nashville-based Jobi Riccio writes songs that meld classic country sounds with modern sensibilities, aiming to turn classic tropes of genre on their head.

Cachitas Now! is part of Center Stage, a public diplomacy initiative of the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs with funding provided by the U.S. Government, administered by the New England Foundation for the Arts in cooperation with the U.S. Regional Arts Organizations. General management is provided by Lisa Booth Management, Inc. Learn more at CenterStageUS.org
