Cecilia Cassandra Peña-Govea writes and records music under the name La Doña, and her signature mix of Latin rhythms and San Francisco hip-hop is a tribute to the community she grew up in. Her new EP is called Algo Nuevo, or “Something New.” NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro spoke to La Doña about her musical and cultural upbringing.
