Synopsis

Amazon.com's Best of 1998
Lhasa De Sela has distinguished herself as a singer and storyteller with her debut album, La Llorona. The 25-year-old Montreal resident, who grew up traveling through Mexico while living on a school bus, sings of her tortured heart with the accompaniment of guitarist-producer-arranger Yves Desrosiers and a cabaret-style band. Already compared to those of Edith Piaf and Billie Holiday, De Sela's haunting voice is memorable on each of the 11 songs (only 3 are nonoriginal) that range in inspiration from Mexican ranchera to Eastern European klezmer. --Cristina Del Sesto

SUPRISE, SORPRESA
Joaquin Vivancos | BARCELONA,SPAIN | 01/04/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Este Cd ha sido mi sorpresa del año 2006 Puede ser un CD de música mejicana una obra maestra???. Si la respuesta es YES, entonces La Llorona="Obra maestra". Lhasa no tiene una voz de las que podríamos calificar de "bonita", pero sí que es carismática y tremendamente expresiva. Si a ello añadimos que las canciones presentan unas letras originales, con sentido y mensaje, unos ritmos que se meten en tu sangre y te acompañan allá adonde vayas, unos arreglos musicales "teatrales" en el mejor sentido del término y unos instrumentos musicales irreprochablemente bien tocados, el resultado dificilmente puede mejorarse. No tengo ni idea si Lhasa está arriba o abajo en el raking de las cantantes superventas. Pero si es lo primero....es lógico,y si es lo segundo...esperemos que tarde o temprano, LHASA, se haga justicia con tu forma de enteder la música."

"If it's something melodic and hypnotizing that your looking for than look no further because you've found it. Not only is this entire C.D. beautiful it's haunting and will stay in you for months each time you hear it. It's quite Remarkable."
