Luz Elena Mendoza returns to themes of searching, metamorphosis, shared humanity, and a faith that is greater than just religion.

Born in San Francisco as a first generation daughter of immigrant parents from Michoacan Mexico, she spent her childhood raised by the melodies and stories that were being told through traditional Mexican folk songs.

These songs being the conversations that were written and sung by her ancestors, yearn to be told and remembered, and have carried her throughout her journey

To battle misogyny at home, Mendoza inheritedly exposed her vulnerability to connect and heal through both musical and personal discovery.

From the intimate, contemplative verses in her native-language, to the revelations of the history in her roots, her story is delivered with poise, while still managing to keep the loping beats of her poetic expression emotionally raw.

These songs are a soundtrack built for coming to grips with, not just one’s own mortality, but the fragility of the world, presenting sounds that carry the realness of ancestral trauma and the search of identity.
