ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Lu Coy (they/them) is a queer mixed media artist and musician of Mexican and Ukrainian Jewish heritage based in Los Angeles, California known for their mastery of woodwinds, elegant use of electronics, and agile vocals. Coy performs regularly with several prominent bands in LA’s Queer-Alt-Latin music scene and has been featured in contemporary operas by Anna Luisa Petrisko, Trulee Hall and Four Larks Opera company. Holding degrees in music performance and composition from the Boston Conservatory of Music and California Institute of the Arts, Coy’s musical practice embraces modern technologies and compositional techniques, while remaining deeply rooted in, and mining inspiration from ancient texts, stories, and musical traditions. Notably, Coy is an avid performer of both Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jewish musical traditions, performing regularly in Yiddish and Ladino. As a recording artist Coy has been featured on various film scores and projects for artists such as Eyvind Kang, Avey Tare, Blonde Redhead, Jarina De Marco, PJ Sin Suela and recently appeared on season 2 of the STARZ series VIDA.
Matías Anaya (she/her) is a Los Angeles-based transfeminine multi-instrumentalist and producer of Peruvian and Uruguayan ancestry. She composes queer Latinx music in a plethora of genres – from cumbia and South American folklore to punk and house. Matías currently performs as a member of cumbia-punk group Lxs Cochinxs and sings her own acoustic compositions as Matías Anaya. She plays at musical venues, art spaces and street protests alike, bringing her message of joy and liberation to all those seeking to dance and sing through the ongoing revolution. Her work has been featured by publications such as Remezcla, SheShreds, and Spin.
Chulita Vinyl Club (CVC) is made up of women, gender-non-conforming, non-binary, LGBTQIA+ and self-identifying people of color. CVC launched in 2014, with the context of providing a safe space for empowerment, togetherness and to utilize music and vinyl as a form of resistance against the erasure of culture. Each Chulita identifies with their own identity. They are not to be classified as one nationality or culture. The unifying denominator is that they come together over the belief that EL DISCO ES CULTURA and they believe that it is worth preserving and perpetuating.
