Marisol La Brava & A Flor de Piel are representing history with their latest single, delivering a cultural legacy through soul and heart. They have been paying homage to history for years, crafting style and substance from the soul of Mexico itself. Their version of "La Bamba" is a hybrid of folk and electronica, ancient rhythms fused with modern beats, over 300 years of spirit now thumping through the streets.
