"In a market flooded with distortion pedals and vocal effects, there's something refreshing about hearing folk music with Italian lyrics in the typical Portland haunts. Mbrascatu reminds us that "local" can mean more than a small circle drawn around the metro area." - Willamette Week
Luz Elena Mendoza
Luzelena Mendozas songs draw from her strict Catholic upbringing as an only daughter of a Mexican immigrant and the vocal harmonies of the Latin music she grew up around. After becoming extremely sick upon returning from a spiritual quest in India, she took in a white, six-toed cat to keep her company as she fought to regain her physical, emotional, and spiritual health. She christened her new feline companion Bamba, a name that she incorporated into the moniker she used for a batch of lo-fi home recordings and performances at open mic nights.
"This former lead singer for Y La Bamba has been compared to Edith Piaf and Ella Fitzgerald. Shes been the face of Travel Portland and has made Best Bands of Portland lists with two different groups - Y La Bamba and now, Tiburones." - OPB
