Amber Galloway Gallego is one of a growing number of American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters who specialize in the performing arts. If you frequent music festivals and concerts, you might see her -- or an interpreter like her -- grooving to the music, mirroring the emotions and physicality of the artists onstage, interpreting their imaginative lyrics for concert-goers who rely on visual accommodations. She’s interpreted for more than 400 artists at this point, and has a special knack for interpreting hip-hop acts.
