La Luz de la Luna is a collaborative duo or trio, based in Phoenix, AZ. Born out of a passion for traditional Mexican folkloric music, La Luz brings a raw and intimate approach to classic styles such as Rancheras, Boleros and Huapangos
Growing up immersed in the rich cultural heritage of Mexican American culture was a blessing for the ladies of La Luz. The passion, the food, the dance, the arte, the MÚSICA has inspired them to share this music with the world. The concept is simple. Keep it simple. Just like our family gatherings, one or two people playing guitar (maybe more instruments if you're lucky) and EVERYONE singing. All the songs that we've grown up with that bring you back to times with family and loved ones. Always sung with reverence and always con PASIÓN!!!
