New York, NY (September 25, 2019) – Y La Bamba released Entre Los Dos last week via Tender Loving Empire. The EP is a collection of portraits, affinities, and new visions from front-person Luz Elena Mendoza's time in Guadalajara, Mexico and follows the acclaimed Mujeres, released earlier this year. Enjoy at TLE + your favorite DSP.
The songs on Entre Los Dos are powerful prayers, created with their purpose being to protect the land and its people, recognize the ancestry that burns in our hearts, and treasure wisdom weaving healthy bonds that reflect self-love with dignity.
The EP was lauded by Pitchfork and Y La Bamba was one of only a handful of artists invited to return to NPR for a second Tiny Desk Concert - Enjoy / Share HERE. Luz was also profiled by Rolling Stone, who says, "Entre Los Dos is an unsparing work of sonic catharsis. In both English and Spanish, Mendoza illustrates the wilderness of her bicultural, neither-here-nor-there existence, as it manifests in both her intimate relationships and the world at large."
Y La Bamba just finished a European tour and returns to the road in the US next week hitting Offbeat and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass before a quick trip east for a House of Vans and New York performance. The month wraps with a west coast run, ending at Festival RadioBosque in Mexico City.
