Mexican MC Niña Dioz Has a Little Something for Your Ears

I'm 27 now, time flies. When I was 17 they baptized me with the name of Niña Dioz. It's been 10 years holding on to a dream, living it every day. I never liked school, I knew I wanted to travel the world and music is the best way to travel and get to know places without paying for airplane tickets. On top of that, you get introduced to cool people and they take you out to eat, I can't complain!

6. What can we expect of this three-day "Cinco de Mayo Weekend" East Coast mini-tour? What do you say to Cinco de Mayo?

It's 3 cities in 3 days. In Miami I presented my album and it went great. I love New York and playing here is amazing, to be able to give something in return to the city that has given me so much culturally.

We'll play with live instruments, live and without a DJ, will be something different. I want people to have fun and we'll all have a blast. In Mexico we don't celebrate Cinco de Mayo so I'll celebrate how gringos do, with a lot of tequila!

Niña Dioz dates:

Philadelphia – Friday May 3, 2013 - Rogue's Gallery hosted by AfroTaino Manhattan – Saturday May 4, 2013 - Le Poisson Rouge for Cinco de Gallo party Brooklyn – Sunday May 5, 2013 - One Last Shag, hosted by La Joteria and Jem
