Album Notes
La Mera Candelaria is a female-fronted cumbia/son project in Los Angeles, CA. Their unique style of "kitchen cumbia" is light-hearted, humble, and unique in its back-to-the-basics feel. The sound quality and style are reminiscent of those cumbia and son classics you grew up dancing to in the kitchen with your abuela while she cleaned on Sunday morning, the distant sounds that drifted into the dining room from the kitchen of your local Latinx restaurant.

This EP features Stephani Candelaria on vocals and hand percussion, Alexándro Hernández on cuatro, Moises Baqueiro on bass, and Richard Herrera on congas. All four members are based in Los Angeles, and have played, or currently play in, groups including La Misa Negra, Tropicorrillo, Aparato!, and Mariachi Manchester. The self-titled EP was a labor of love, produced by Degruvme of the La Junta Collective, and was recorded exclusively in Los Angeles kitchens (almost entirely barefoot or chancla-d) to give the record that lively, "home" feel that cumbia and son are all about.
