about

Mining the archives of global roots music, this crossover band offers a bilingual blend of original songs and a fresh approach to roots music. This CD pays tribute to conjunto, a type of folk music that first formed along the Tex-Mex border. It features 1930's ballads, a devilish cumbia, dance-hall rancheras, cry-in-your beer country duets, and some Johnny Cash for good measure. This recording stands apart with rich vocals, lively accordion, old-school bajo sexto, violin and cornet, and showcases special guest Grammy-nominated maestro Santiago Jiménez Jr. Dedicated to the life and legend of Lydia Mendoza.

Reviews:
Top 10 World Music Albums, December 2008
~ Soundroots/ Spin the Globe for "Luna Nueva" CD

Tara Linda's rich sultry vocal pays wonderful homage to the legend, Lydia Mendoza [and]...her love for this music is evident in her passionate delivery.... The result is a swirling blend where the European folk elements and Latin rhythms create a sound that is at once familiar and exotic. ~ Don Secheiski, The Muse's Muse, 12/20/08.

rich vocals...El Diabolito y Su Accordion is rich with dust blown, atmospheric menace: 8 out of 10 ~ Americana UK - 1/09
