[LEADING LADIES] Together, singer-songwriters Luz Elena Mendoza and Edna Vazquez make a powerful lineup. Hell, separately, each woman can easily silence a crowded room. Known widely and fondly as Y la Bamba’s frontwoman, Mendoza also plays a killer show on her own. Blending influences from her Mexican heritage with contemporary indie-folk sounds, the striking bandleader writes a variety of songs in English and Spanish that delve into her personal history with grace and magnetism. Vazquez, who was born in Mexico and moved to the United States as a teenager, draws from a mariachi background for her inward-reaching folk music. With a deeply irresistible voice and commanding stage presence, the Portland-based singer and guitar player performs with a rawness that’s intimate and entrancing. Between the two of them, there’s really no way tonight’s show will be anything short of excellent.
