I wish for a wishing well, this smoke is the air. I breathe in times of despair. ”

Lyrics from Alida St.

Portland, Oregon indie folk rock group Y La Bamba is made up of Luz Elena Mendoza (Vocals), Paul Cameron (Guitar), Michael Kitson (Percussion), Ben Meyercord (Bass), Eric Schrepel (Accordion), and Scott Arthur Magee (Percussion). Mendoza, who is originally from California, provides the light and airy melodic vocals that dance over the group's instrumentation, which touches on traditional Mexican folk and mariachi music influences, while still remaining true to the indie-folk roots. The group released their first album Alida St in 2008 on Gypsypop Records, and followed it with Lupon in 2010, which was named after Mendoza's father and features a drawing of her grandfather on the cover art. After making the switch to Tender Loving Empire Records, 2012 sees the release of their third full length feature Court The Storm, and a tour in support of the album.
Y La Bamba
A passionate synthesis of orchestral indie and traditional Mexican folk music
