Hurray for the Riff Raff
Wovoka Gentle

Hurray For The Riff Raff is Alynda Segarra, but in many ways it's much more than that: it's a young woman leaving her indelible stamp on the American folk tradition. If you're listening to her most recent album, Small Town Heroes, odds are you're part of the riff raff, and these songs are for you.

Segarra, first came to international attention in 2012 with Look Out Mama. The album earned her raves from NPR and the New York Times to Mojo and Paste, along with a breakout performance at the 2013 Newport Folk Festival, which left American Songwriter awestruck and solidified her place at the forefront of a new generation of young musicians celebrating and reimagining American roots music.

On Small Town Heroes Segarra mines the deep legacies and contemporizes the rich variety of musical forms of the American South for the age of Trayvon Martin and Wendy Davis. In turn, NPR’s assertion that Hurray For The Riff Raff sweeps across eras and genres with grace and grit has never been more true than on her latest album.

As mentioned in a recent MOJO magazine article, Hurray for the Riff Raff are finishing work on a new album, due early 2017. Speaking about the new record, Alynda Segarra commented, “I’ve been listening to a lot of Latin music, been inspired by the history of Fania Records in New York and bomba and plena from Puerto Rico. I’ve been immersing myself in Latino excellence. I hope to break out of the Americana box, and be free to be myself artistically and to keep growing and changing”.
