Angelica Garcia’s new album ‘Cha Cha Palace,’ out now

Today, Angelica Garcia releases her new album, Cha Cha Palace. Cha Cha Palace is the result of Garcia’s daily experience of finding her own sense of identity and place. With Mexican and Salvadoran roots in the San Gabriel Valley, east of Los Angeles, Garcia has spent the last few years creating a new, second family for herself within the welcoming community of Richmond, VA. This multicultural dichotomy shapes Cha Cha Palace, which finds Garcia confidently assembling a “mental scrapbook” of her journey for listeners, and for herself, all the while confronting a lifetime of feeling split between two identities.

Cha Cha Palace is available everywhere now on limited edition sapphire blue vinyl, black vinyl, and CD.

As a release day bonus, Angelica Garcia shares a live LA rooftop session of “Guadalupe,” courtesy of Spectrum News 1 Music Diaries.
