On Friday, April 28th @ 10AM PDT, Little Citrus sits down with Luz Elena Mendoza Ramos, lead vocalist and producer of eclectic indie folk pop band, Y La Bamba.

To declare one thematic narrative from Lucha, Y La Bamba’s seventh album, would be to chisel away a story within a story within a story into the illusion of something singular.

“Lucha is a symbol of how hard it is for me to tackle healing, live life, and be present,” Luz Elena Mendoza Ramos says of the title behind the album which translates from Spanish to English as ‘fight’ and is also a nickname for Luz, which means light. The album explores multiplicity—love, queerness, Mexican American and Chicanx identity, family, intimacy, yearning, loneliness—and chronicles a period of struggle and growth for Mendoza Ramos as a person and artist.

Y La Bamba plays The Chapel in San Francisco on Sunday, April 30th.
