Luz Elena Mendoza is a Pisces goddess who plays under the name Y La Bamba. Based out of Portland, Oregon, she graces the west coast with her haunting, angelic voice. Her dark, minimalistic Mexican-inspired experimental folk songs engage the listener in a realm of the dreamy solitude of a very old soul.
The band's new album, "Lupon", was released on September 28th, 2010 on Portland label Tender Loving Empire. www.myspace.com/ylabamba
