Tish Hinojosa's roots, style

Leticia ("Tish") Hinojosa from San Antonio, Texas, is a folk singer recording in both Spanish and English. Hinojosa was the youngest of 13 children. Hinojosa's parents were Mexican immigrants.

Moving with equal grace through folk, country, pop and latino styles, Hinojosa's music reflects contemporary America’s multicultural richness.

Combining a vision that embraces all of these musical styles, with her characteristic warmth and a pure, soulful voice, this enchanting Texan singer-songwriter has gained a loving and loyal audience throughout America, Europe and beyond.

Indie folk album of the year

Hinojosa has charted twice on the Billboard country charts and has recorded several albums, primarily for Rounder Records. Her 1992 album, Culture Swing, won the NAIRD Indie Folk Album of the Year.

Over the years, Tish Hinojosa has emerged as a strong, poetic, sensual voice whose songs distill the elements of folk music and her Hispanic roots to create an intensely authentic and personal sound.

Come listen to Tish as our special guest artist for the Cesar Chavez Celebration.

This event is free and open to the public. Free parking after 4 p.m. in most A, Z and Lory Student Center meter lots.
