Gina Chavez

As one of Austin’s most beloved world music/indie artists, Gina Chavez is known for her impressive multi-instrumental performances and an inimitable sound inspired by various Latin rhythms and styles.

At this year’s SXSW, she took home three 2013-14 Austin Music Awards, including Best Female Vocals, Best Latin Traditional and Best Latin Rock, while placing in six other categories.

Phoebe Hunt

Phoebe Hunt wraps her sultry voice and sincere lyrics right around listeners’ souls with each song. Flowing between the heartbreaking tones of a classic country song into the provocative riffs of a jazz artist, Hunt artfully navigates through many musical landscapes pulling from the heart of the American soul.

She shifts moods from playfully demure to seductive and intimate in the blink of a beat. But the quality that shines through most is her honesty. Phoebe is a long time volunteer at the Global Youth Peace Summit and inspiration behind the One Village Music Project.

One Village Music Project

Precious Human LifeYouth from our One Village Music Project will be performing at Growing Circles.  After last year’s Global Youth Peace Summit, 17 youth united to create an inspiring album of hope and inspiration called Precious Human Life, which is now available on Itunes.
