Title track from new EP out on September 20 via Tender Loving Empire
Through the veins of Y La Bamba front-person Luz Elena Mendoza, runs Purepecha blood. Adapting to new environments over and over again, she has become someone who constantly questions and empowers through music: her great teacher and tireless companion. Y La Bamba will release Entre Los Dos on September 20 via Tender Loving Empire and shares the title track – out Friday, August 30 on all DSPs.
This song is about unconditional love
It comes with strong feelings that hurt and that challenge the heart.
A love that navigates through confusing parts of ego and sincere care.
In this song I’m discussing with my inner self about the way I’ve learned to love.
Romantic Intimacy and nurturing intimacy has been something I’ve been sitting with.
Learning to see and heal through this energy in relationships especially those that just are.
‘Entre los dos’, meaning in between the two.
Where two share the responsibilities of growth and vulnerability even though it could hurt like hell.
– Luz Elena Mendoza
The creative flow of Entre Los Dos moves without stopping, without resisting its own form. It adapts, migrates, and fuses with its environment and receptors. The EP comes as a collection of portraits, affinities, and new visions from Mendoza’s time in Guadalajara, Mexico. These are songs and 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.
