San Cha is an L.A.-based singer-songwriter known for her explosive, visceral and emotional live performances. Her name is derived from the Spanish word sancha which translates to ‘mistress’, and is also a reference to the title of ‘San’ given to male saints in the Catholic tradition.In "La Luz de la Esperanza," the story follows Dolores, una mujer bella, simple y humilde que se casa con Salvador, a wealthy young man with high social standing. When Dolores gets everything she ever wanted but is still left unsatisfied, their fairytale love quickly takes a dark turn. In her moments of sadness, Dolores is greeted by a divine apparition named Esperanza, who she falls in love with.San Cha says, "This story is inspired by the relationships I have with people that are undefinable, fluid and transformative. Relationships that fall outside of the expectations normalized by our blood family structures, religion, movies and all the telenovelas I grew up with."
