Y La Bamba | 03/13/2019

    

Y La Bamba is an enigmatic indie folk-pop project fronted and led by singer and songwriter Luz Elena Mendoza. Her group’s sound weds Mexican folk styles from mariachi, nueva canciones, and norteño to trippy American folk-rock and dreamy indie pop with songs that center on themes of spirituality, romantic and familial love, and social justice. Mendoza sings in both Spanish and English. While Y La Bamba’s sophomore date Lupon showcased a sound that flitted effortlessly between airy, raw indie rock to lo-fi, post-psychedelic Americana, 2012’s Court the Storm fully integrated Mexican cumbia and nuevo canciones into the mix. Mendoza and band further expanded their sonic palette to include subtle electronic textures into their idiosyncratic and acclaimed musical approach.
