From the album, Ojos Del Sol (2016) • Purchase Album

The Portland act’s fourth offering is a sweeping, playful and vulnerable collection that’s ripe with both musical and personal discovery. From the intimate, contemplative verses of the Spanish-language title track to the revelations delivered over the loping beats of “Ostrich,” this is an album that’s painstakingly produced while remaining emotionally raw.
Throughout the collection, Y La Bamba front woman Luz Elena Mendoza returns to themes of searching, metamorphosis, shared humanity and for a faith that is greater than just religion.
Born in San Francisco, she spent her childhood summers playing in the orchards of California’s San Joaquin Valley with her cousins, and it was there that she soaked up the melodies and stories that were being told through traditional folk songs with three-part harmonies.
These are songs built to soundtrack coming to grips, not just with one’s own mortality, but with the fragility of the world. This is heady, emotional fare, and “this record is about being a mother to these emotions,” Mendoza says.
“I am thankful for all of my hardships,they have guided me to find rest in my soul, time after time. Over and over again.”
