Building off the success of last year’s Selena for Sanctuary, a free Selena-themed outdoor concert in support of immigration rights, organizer, artist manager, and activist Doris Muñoz, is bringing the event to SummerStage for 2019. Born of a series of benefit concerts she put together in Southern California in 2017 called Solidarity for Sanctuary, Muñoz’s dance parties raise funds to help immigrants navigate the bureaucratic minefield that is U.S. immigration policy to set them on the path to citizenship. This year’s party is headlined by Kali Uchis, a Colombian-American singer with a critically acclaimed debut LP (2018’s Isolation) and collaborations with Gorillaz, Juanes and Daniel Caesar. She’s supported by Cuco, an ascendant Chicano bedroom pop star who is set to drop his debut album with Interscope after a prolonged bidding war ; Ambar Lucid, an 18-year-old Dominican and Mexican-American singer-songwriter from New Jersey who writes bilingual tunes and wield finger-picked guitars and spaced out electronics with equal aplomb; DJ Svani, a Norwegian DJ and producer who spins R&B, hip-hop, dancehall, kuduro, and dembow; and the Santuario House Band, led by music director Adrian Quesada.
