La Bamba - Lila Downs

Legbamel Not-Pop

When last I posted Lila Downs I mentioned that "Shake Away" contained what I consider the best cover of La Bamba ever recorded. Today I'd like to back that up with the pudding in which lies the proof.

This one starts slow and lovely. Then it gets bigger. Then, just when you're settling into it at :45 it turns into another song. I'm telling you, you have to hear what Lila Downs does with La Bamba to really appreciate her sound. Conveniently, you can do that right...about...now.
