Y LA BAMBA
Y LA BAMBA
Y La Bamba is an enigmatic indie folk-pop project fronted and led by singer and songwriter Luz Elena Mendoza. The group's sound weds Mexican folk styles -- from mariachi, nueva cancion, and norteño to American folk-rock and dreamy indie pop. Mendoza sings in Spanish and English. Her parents hail from Mexico. Though born in San Francisco, she was raised in Southern Oregon and spent her childhood summers in California’s San Joaquin Valley with cousins; there Mendoza absorbed the melodies, three part-harmonies, and folktales of traditional Mexican mariachi. In 2003, she took a trip to India where she fell ill. It was there that she developed the expansive spiritual world-view that would inform her future music.
WILLETTA
Willetta is a culmination of time and stories, and represents the illusion of womanhood. She was raised in a small town in the southwest, in the early 1900s. She was in every household. She persisted. She was earnest. She was abused. She was yearned for. She was a comfort. She is a story every woman knows. Every song that Willetta sings is about every maiden, every mother, every crone. All women own Willetta.

Willetta is a southwest-inspired music installation, prepared over the span of a year, and curated by multiple feminine forces in the Phoenix/Tempe community.

She will be mourned.
