by Mírame and the San Antonio Ambient Orchestra.
Mírame is a Latinx group of millenials and Gen Z neo-hippies based out of San Antonio, TX, comprised of
Natassia Casas (Vocalist), Karen Jimenez (Guitarist/Vocalist), Angelo Salgado (Keyboardist/Trumpeter),
Enrique Zurita (Drummer), William Anderson (Keyboardist/Rapper), and Luis Fermin (Bassist/Producer).
Formed in the Spring of 2018 when they met as students at the University of Texas at San Antonio
(UTSA). The local sound of San Antonio’s country, Tejano, and alternative-rock music scene was disrupted
by Mírame’s fusion of rock, hip-hop and Latin grooves. Being that they all have multi-cultural identities,
Mexican-American and the like, their music showcases the sound of the first generation to ever embark
on an urban journey at the whims of their parents’ and grandparents’ efforts. Mírame is a part of the
next generation of conscious minorities, using their art as a voice that speaks for Love, Culture, and the
Earth. Listen at: miramemusic.bandcamp.com
The San Antonio Ambient Orchestra is a new 15-member ensemble conducted and instantiated by noted
San Antonio composer and bandleader Jamail Chachere. Tonight the orchestra builds upon a vehicle by
Andrew Bergmann called Conveyors, beginning MuTeFest quietly. The quiet is insistent, unpredictable
and lush, compelling listeners to listen and cleansing the collective palate before our 5-day MuTeFest.
