Be­fore hit­ting the road as a teenager and busk­ing for a liv­ing, Alynda Se­garra was in­ti­mately fa­mil­iar with the streets of the Bronx, where she was born and raised. The tal­ented singer-song­writer leaned into the Amer­i­cana scene, re­leas­ing five al­bums of bluesy, jazzy neo-doo-wop with a Gillian Welch-meets-Patsy-Cline time­less­ness that feels more au­then­tic than de­riv­a­tive, if a lit­tle stu­dious. Se­garra gets back to her Puerto Ri­can roots on 2017’s The Nav­i­ga­tor (ATO Records), a re­turn home that is con­ceived as a con­cept al­bum around an al­ter ego named Navita Mi­la­gros Ne­grón, in which she hon­ors her com­mu­nity and an­ces­tors. Hur­ray for the Riff Raff plays at Meow Wolf (1352 Ru­fina Cir­cle, 505-395-6369) on Tues­day, June 6, at 7 p.m. with open­ing band Mak­ing Movies. Tick­ets to the 21-and-over show are $16 in ad­vance and $19 at the door; $1 of ev­ery ticket ben­e­fits Mi­jente, a na­tional Latino/a so­cial jus­tice net­work. Visit www.me­ow­wolf.com.
