GABY MORENO

An angry orange man with tiny hands may be trying to convince the American public that a wall should keep immigrants out of a country founded by immigrants, but Guatemalan singer Gaby Moreno knows what's up. In "Fronteras," she meanders, winding through a humming intro to verses in Spanish ("I smile, I dance"), and arrives at a triumphant refrain in English: "This is where I belong!" Moreno's thoughtful songs range from pop hits (like a duet with Guatemalan star Ricardo Arjona) to gospel-backed R&B. Though she's often overtly political, with lyrics that warn the listener, "Save yourselves, those who can," Moreno isn't afraid to venture into pure fantasy: "I once had a vintage Ferrari, gave it to Jean Luc Godard." During a dismal election season, she promises to delight. Austin rocker David Garza opens. —Amanda Black
