Y La Bamba has been around for almost a decade now since singer-songwriter Luz Elena Mendoza formed the band in Portland, Oregon in 2006. With a blend of traditional Mexican music, gentle American folk-rock, and dreamy Northwest indie-pop their sound has caught a lot of attractions for being beautiful and distinctive.
After their early albums, Lupon (2010) and Court the Storm (2012) found the initial success – Ojos Del Sol in 2016, ranked amongst NPR’s Top 50 Albums of 2016. Now they are back with their latest release Mujeres. “Mujeres” is Spanish for woman, and the album is a musically rich, highly textured collection of songs about identity and womanhood.
