“Ojos del Sol” or ‘Eyes of Sun’ is as sincere and warm as its title. Y La Bamba have created a beautiful little acoustic track that will layer your soul in love from the inside out. Consisting of nothing more than exquisite Spanish vocals and an acoustic guitar, focus goes straight to the emotion of the song - which you’ll feel deeply even if you don’t understand the lyrics.
It’s a joyous meditation on change, loss of faith, and a regained sense of wonder; it is simultaneously reflective and jubilant. Incorporating a mix of classic Mexican folk and modern, Western folk-rock influences, “Ojos del Sol” is composed in such a way that the vocals confidently anchor the introspective mix of layered strings and soft percussion beautifully.
Y La Bamba are masters at exploring the in-betweens and grey spaces, creating a moving piece that is more than the sum of its parts.
