An artist who continues to awe her audience. I wish I had taken Spanish class so I could understand the lyrics - however the guitar and othere instruments bring the emotion.

La Llorana is a ghost story; a woman who killed her children roams the earth lamenting their deaths (and grabbing other people’s kids, living kids, to try to replace hers). Unless you’re a fan of horror stories, you really don’t want to know.

Think Medea, in denial of what she’d done, grieving endlessly over the “unexplained” deaths of her children.
