Musician Japanese-American, Mexican, Indigenous Los Angeles, CA Raye Zaragoza is known for tenacious feminist anthems and fearless protest folk. Her stage presence teems with determined morale. As a Japanese-American, Mexican, Indigenous woman, Zaragoza spent much of her early life trying to assimilate, but she has come a long way from that youthful pain. She’s a proud, multicultural, brown woman who hopes to inspire young girls to be whatever they want to be. After the success of her breakthrough single, “In The River,” Zaragoza released Fight For You, a protest-driven full-length debut album. Her confidence radiates from Woman In Color, Zaragoza’s sophomore album, out now on Rebel River Records, her own independent label. The album delivers powerful missives about embracing one’s own identity and discovering the power behind it, all across brisk, emotive, compelling folk melodies.
