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.
Her debut release Alida St. was the first record put out on GYPSYPOP RECORDS, marking the beginning of both the artist and label. Viva Y La Bamba!
