Y La Bamba is the brainchild of Luz Elena Mendoza out of Portland who has been building upon her musical heritage of growing up listening to the Mexican folk records of her immigrant parents by blending with the band’s other influences to create this vintage-dreamy-folk sound that is captivatingly deep. The band’s subtle yet lush instrumentation is the perfect canvas to showcase Mendoza’s richly textured voice and her ability to authentically capture the emotion of her often deeply personal lyrics.
