On the show this time, it’s the Mexican-American indie-folk of Portland’s Y La Bamba.
Y La Bamba is the band name of Luz Elena Mendoza-Ramirez. They’ve been making music since the mid 2000s, starting out like many a great band - playing the open mics around their part time hometown of Portland Oregon. Over the years the band has changed, but the community around it has only grown. They’ve worked with folks like Chris Funk from the Decemberists, Steve Berlin from Los Lobos, and Sergio Mendoza from Calexico. They’ve toured with Neko Case and the Lumineers. They’ve hit the Billboard Latin Pop charts, NPR’s top lists, and stolen the hearts of every independent radio station that took the time to listen. Their latest album, 'Lucha,' is available on Tender Loving Empire.
